I thought I saw a thread once about making Tootise Roll roses but can't seem to find it.
Can anyone direct me to a 'how to'?
My search on CC doesn't work for some reason, but I found instructions on e-help. Some of their stuff is questionable, but this looks pretty good.
Hope this helps!
I found the same one after I already posted, thank you for your help! It really looks basically like the same construction as a tonedna gumpaste rose (minus the ruffled edges).
It really is the same basic process as the 5 petal rose. I was going to say that before I found the tutorial but I wasn't sure if you knew how to do a 5 petal rose. I figured it wouldn't help you much if I just said oh, do it like this, and you had no idea Plus I had no idea if there was a trick to softening the tootsie roll
Last month, during one of my fraternity caterings, we had some downtime between lunch and dinner. There were tootsie rolls on hand, so I started just playing with them and making roses. Taught 2 of my staff how to make them just while we were sitting there killing time. (They did really well!!) They're pretty easy!
Check out this thread about caramel roses...
They look awesome! I bought some caramels but haven't gotten around to trying them.
Chilz....I have never made gumpaste roses, but made tootsie roll, starburst and fruit roll up roses in a snap! I have some on my chocolate cake with almonds in my gallery. They are a cinch. Have fun.
