I'm making gum paste roses to go around each tier of a round wedding cake and have some ideas of how to attach them but wanted to know if anyone has the best way.
I was thinking of using royal icing but I don't want them to stick to the fondant and make it hard for the cutter to cut the cake. And have to spend a lot of time trying to remove them.
Then, I thought maybe I should put each cake on a board bigger than the cake and attach the roses there with royal icing.
Any thoughts on best practice for this?
I make my roses on tooth picks that way I can just insert the toothpicks into the cake. Works great.
Me too. The pic in my gallery is of GP roses on cocktail sticks, which are a little longer than toothpicks.
Thanks for the idea! I was taught to use tooth picks but I have also used wire. Thanks again!
