(psssst...it's "YouTube," not "U.Tube" - just in case you ever wanted to go there to watch videos. Both "u.tube" and "utube" are search engines)

Here's one: http://home-and-garden.webshots.com/album/409694647SCfrnv

and here's another: http://www.sugarcraftandcakedecorating.com/how-to.php?page=162

and yet another: http://www.sugarcraftandcakedecorating.com/how-to.php?page=250

Enjoy! icon_smile.gif

There is a few in Youtube, I made one for people that have no cutters and wanted to get started with just a simple round cutter. But you can use a cutter for separate petals. Eventually I might add one for a five petal cutter, but I think someone has one, not sure who.
Here is the link to my homepage..Under the big screen you will find all my videos..

The roses in my avatar are made by using the Edna method (Tonedna.) they were the first roses I ever made! Edna's method is awesome and one of the videos you can watch on YouTube. In my humble opinion... she's the best!

Actually it wasn't. It was an independant class in my local supply shop, but unfortunately the teacher had to run the shop while doing the class, which didn't leave alot of time for helping us newbies. At the time mine were the closest to looking like roses (I've done alot of sculpey before) but nowhere near yours!!

I was never completely happy with my roses... I kept trying and trying, and seems the more you do them the more you figure them out..I think they are pretty complicated, specially if you are trying for them to look real.

Okay, silly question here....how is the cake cut and served with gumpaste roses on them? I'm making a Derby themed cake and want to have realistic looking roses on them, but don't want it to be a hassle for the customer to cut and serve the cake. For example, I'm putting a large horseshoe shaped (using the Wilton horseshoe pan) bed of roses in the center of a large cake. Should I make the horseshoe out of cardboard with a fondant "base" in the shape of the horseshoe and stick the gumpaste roses in that, only to be removed when it comes time to serve the cake? Any suggestions? Thanks!!

Basically, my job is to make the cake pretty!..Now about the flowers, is just a matter of taking them off before serving. Just like they would have to do it if they were fresh..

Can't you pause the videos then restart them? Then replay them as needed.

Im self-taught when it comes to roses but I think mine are pretty realistic! (Not to toot my own horn or anything!) If any of you need help, I would be happy to answer any questions!

Thank you, thank you, thank you Edna!!

I can't wait to try your method! Your roses are beautiful!

Thanks for the reply. Basically, make the cake taste and look fabulous and let them worry about cutting and serving it - works for me!

Next question, then...what do you use to make beautifully red, realistic roses? Color-wise, I mean. I'm past the point of doing red buttercream roses because I couldn't get the right color and consistency, so now I'm on to the more realistic look of gumpaste. But what about achieving that nice, deep red color? Thanks!

BTW, Edna, your videos are wonderful! I've been watching several of them and my 3-year-old daughter even turned off her Einstein's movie to watch you! I asked her what she was doing and she said she wanted to watch the pretty lady making the cake. icon_smile.gif
