LOL I taught my nieces and nephew how to do this with Crayola Model Magic. icon_smile.gif That's how I originally learned to do fondant roses years ago.

Thats cute! I think I want to teach my daughter this too she loves cake decorating too. She takes my practice cakes and dismantals them and pretends to make her own cake.

You can also do this with softened gum drops.....I think I saw it in Family Circle a while back

Can also use softened starburst, laffy taffy, airheads.......anything with that basic texture. And tootsie rolls come in multiple colors and flavors too now. I make things with these candies fairly often, cause I don't like fondant.

Quite some time ago, I used to watch a program. Some of you may recall it as well. It was Aleene's Creative Living. I was awestruck by the bread dough rose! They looked like porcelain when they dried. Anyway, that's the same technique they showed.

It was the miniature versions that I loved so much.


here's the recipe for the dough roses...easiest stuff ever to make!

Wow! that is the first time I have ever heard of making a rose with bread dough, thank you for those sites. I do think the fondand rose would be much easier than the gumpaste ones. I have a 1 1/2 year old and it seems like every time I sit down to work with gumpaste he starts screaming, so I have pretty much gave up for the time being. The airhead thing would be cool for my daughters b-day. Thank you!

I made some beautiful roses out of dried apricots once. I just rolled them between waxed paper and then assembled them pretty much the way you would any rose. If I remember correctly, I used dabs of strained apricot jam as the glue, pushed a toothpick horizontally through the base, and glazed the whole thing with the jam. After it set overnight, I pulled out the toothpick and cut the bases flat so they could stood up on the cake (it was a cake covered with poured chocolate ganache.
