My DIL wanted me to make a BD cake for her friend. She wants me to make a box cake, with a dozen roses, on stems.
I made the " buds " and let them dry yesterday. Today I started making the actual rose, and the rose is slipping down the wire, where the wire is poking through the rose.
Any suggestions?? Is the chocolate too soft?? I mixed 2/3 modeling chocolate to 1/3 fondant to try and add some strength to it and it still didn't work??
If you didn't you need to make a hook or loop at the end of the wire to keep it from turning and slipping down. If it's just on the straight wire you'll never keep it from slipping.
Did you make a little loop at the end of your wire? That should help if you didn't.
I can't believe it!!!!!! I " FORGOT " the hook!!! Now, I have to start over!
It's not like I haven't made roses before... I started not to even admit that's what I did! (LOL)
Thanks for the reminders!
