I am planning a wedding cake and i am going to be making some fondant roses for it. I want to make big roses (maybe a 3" diameter) some medium (1.5-2" diameter) and then smaller ones (1-1.5" diameter)

Will the 90mm FMM 5 petal cutter make roses as large as 3"

In my experience, it will provide about 2- 2 1/2 inches. for 3" you would probably need to use a larger cutter with individual petals. But try it, you might be satisfied with it.

Thanks JoAnnB. I've only ever made roses using a 5 petal cutter but i am planning on taking some gumpaste classes before this cake is due so hopefully i will learn how to do them properly with individual petals.

I like to use the separate cutters instead because you really have to work quickly with the 5 petal cutters otherwise they can rip right off your gumpaste if your not careful.
I buy the celcakes celbuds for my centers and start there. If you want step by step instructions, PM me.

If you add extra layers of petals you can enlarge that rose to 3" icon_smile.gif
As I remember I made flowers from that 90mm then added some individiual petals to enlarge it. I don't like using wires...I just added them to the whole rose using gp glue.

A rose that heavy wont stay up very well with glue. You need the wire for the support. Thats why I use the celbuds because the wires stay in them very well.

I don't have access to my pic of the cake I made those roses for but it was a 'trail' of roses from top to bottom and there was no problem w/the petals staying up nor placing them onthe cake. No wires or celbuds were used.

Thanks Guys. I watched Tonedna's you tube tutorials on making the roses with individual petals and they were really lovely. I have large circle cutters so i wouldn't need to buy any new cutters.
