I have a quick question - I have a cake due on Wednesday that I want to make fondant roses for and was wondering if I made them up this weekend will they still be okay for Wednesday?
Also as an aside question has anyone used a pasta roller with fondant? I use mine for gumpaste all the time and love it but haven't tried it with fondant? If I put tylose in the fondant would that help let me get it to roll thinner and keep from tearing?

Thank you!!!

your fondant flowers will start to dry like the gumpaste but will be just fine... unless you want them soft. Personally I have used the pasta roller and it was fine. You might just dust the fondant with powderwd sugar or cornstarch to keep it from sticking. I add a little tylose to my fondant when making flowers to help them dry faster. I do not add so much as to turn the fondant into gumpaste.

Hope this helps

Thank you Laurascakefactory - it's going to make my life a lot easier to make the roses ahead of time rather then trying to make them and decorate the cake all in one night icon_smile.gif
