I am starting to work on the roses for my daughter's wedding cake. I am having three different sizes of roses this is the rose bud, then I am going to have a middle size then the full bloom. Please....do these look ok??? Is there something I am doing wrong, should I be doing something different or do these look ok??? I have not added the calyx yet or any petal dust.
What is a good color to use for the calyx?? Thanks you guys!! Take Care!!
They are beautiful! You did a wonderful job!
Nothing wrong with those, once you get he calyx on there you will see how beautiful they are. i would use a mossy green or a forest green.
Great work! The cake will be beautiful! Don't forget to post a photo so we can see it. BTW - when is the wedding?
Thanks everyone!!!! I will continue on!! LOL....Her wedding is May 2.
They look good. Once you get the calyx on you will see how finished they will look. For green coloring for leaves and stems, I always like to get as close to the look of real foliage as possible. I have never seen a green leaf as green as the leaf green coloring gel. I add either moss green or juniper to the leaf green to make it more realistic. If you don't have those a bit of brown or black will tone it back.
Wow, they are really beautiful!
I like moss green!
Your rosebuds are very pretty! Good job
your rose buds are beautiful. and i like moss green..
Yes on the lead color hint
Take a marble size lump of pink fondant; add some green then tone it down w/some white. You probably only need a golf ball size piece total for all your calyx.
Your rosebuds are very pretty! Please be sure to post a picture of the wedding cake!
I think they look awesome!! very pretty
