Hi everyone. I am fairly new to this and I have to make a cake with roses on it. I have no idea how to do that. Would it be better to try with icing or gumpast? Can anyone please help. Thanks so much.
Here's a link to a tutorial for buttercream roses.
If you do a search for roses, you'll get all sorts of hits. Good luck!
I cant make an icing rose to save my life. Even though they are pretty all mine end up being 1/2 fondant 1/2 gumpaste. There are several tutorials here and on youtube.
Hi, on the home pasge there is a tutorial from aine2 on making roses with gumpaste using a 5 petal cutter.
Here is another tutorial using a 5 petal cutter.
Here is another one,
Here is another one from tonedna. Ther 3 parts to it.
I haven't ck'd out the links you have been given but I think the easiest for someone like you would be to make fondant ribbon roses.
You just cut a strip of fondant aobut 3" wide by aobut 5-7" long and roll it up, pinching the bottom as you go so it flares out some to look more like a rose.
