Hi all,

I have the 3 standard flower cutters that came with my wilton course, but I want to make it larger than that. Can you buy a cutter larger than the one that came in the kit?

Or, is there another way to make them without the cutters? I don't think I want the ribbon style, I like the standard looking rose.

Thanks

Yes, there is someone else that makes several sizes of rose cutters. You can get them from the small to life size. The ones I have are either PME or FMM.

What I did was to make the biggest one I could w/'normal' cutters then made seperate petals (not wired) which I put together in cups then put the normal rose on top of them. The final rose was about 4" wide.

It really depends how big you want the rose yo be. Globalsugarart has the five petal rose cutter in a lot of sizes.. But if you want a bigger rose you might need to do them in separate petals.. Just like kakelady suggested.

I think using 4 cutters would be what I'm looking for. I have use 3 cutters and you get the med. size rose, so I think 4 cutters would be idea for what I'm wanting to do. So, I guess I need one size liarger than what comes in the wilton kit.

No you aren't going to find the PME or FMM ones at Micheals. They are going to be something you have to order or find at a cake supply store.

I've made large roses using Wilton's Nesting Blossoms cookie cutter set: http://www.wilton.com/store/site/product.cfm?id=3E316CA3-475A-BAC0-5ED5234A8199181B&fid=3E32EC3F-475A-BAC0-5A1725AF51DB9542

Just use them as you would the little ones (cutting between the petals) and you have 6 petals per layer, not 5. Easy!
