Ok, so after seeing all the beautiful cakes on here with the sugar flowers, I decided that I have to learn, so here is my first rose. It is not perfect, but I am so happy. Any critiques are welcome as well as any tips!!!!! Thanks for looking!

Looks good, certainly very good for a first try.

Only comment, if you make the center a bit more pointed and enclose it with two petals, overlapping, it will look more natural. then continue as you have.

good work.

Wow! Good job. It is really pretty. The only thing I would do differently is on the center petals, bring them up so you can't see the core. You just want a tiny opening. It is really pretty though. You should have seen My first rose. I threw it away in a hurry before anyone could see it. LOL. Congratulations.
