I hate to bug you guys for tutorials. I usually learn so much just looking at other people's requests and figuring things out for myself but I can not figure this one out.

That cake is awesome! IDK how she did it, but you should try to PM her. Just ask her and hopefully wither her or someone else reading this will know. Good luck!

This is just my opinion, which really does not mean much. LOL, but it looks like the petals were made of fondant or she used a very large rose tip. Either way I think when I go into work tomorrow Im going to try my large rose tip to see if I can make that. Its beautiful.

There are a bunch of additional pictures that show how she did it. They're right below the picture when you open it.

It is very easy, the cake will be the rose center, then you have to cut the petals with fondant measuring the size of the cake, and you will be working as if you were making a gum paste rose.

OMG so i opened this post and was like what are they talking about i clicked on the link and it was MY rose thats soooo exciteing to me being i just put my pic up today... but its really easy to just follow the pics i used 50/50 fondant and gumpaste so the petals would dry faster i cut rough circles and ovals and then cut then in half to get my petal shapes the main thing is to not line up your petals you want them alil off set from each other good luck and if you need more help message me

Oh OK, I get it now! All those extra construction pics weren't there when I first saw it. I just didn't understand how you would start that, wether it was a gob of fondant or what on the top. Now I understand. I have got to try this! Thanks Krissy, that sure is a pretty cake!
