I think I can figure it out but if anyone can give me a step by step (hopefully not too many steps) I would really appreciate it.

They look like ribbon roses to me. I think there is a tutorial about them. That or maybe someone just gave directions in a forum. HTH!!!

yes those are ribbon roses and they are not as pinched and bunched - just rolled up.

so, what I am guessing is rolling out a strip of fondant, folding it over to get the soft edge and rolling it up? Sounds easy enough... When you say ribbon you are not talking about fabric right? 'cuz in the picture close up you can tell they are def. made out of fondant.

Thanks so much for your help!

Yes they call em ribbon roses because they are made from a ribbon of fondant as opposed to petals. And you have the idea perfectly clear! Try a few and you'll fall in love with them. Oonce you got down the look you want they are pretty quick once your hands know how to behaive.

Good Luck! thumbs_up.gif

Those are such cute flowers, but for some reason I can never make them look right.

Pink cake box is on here! Wow, she is virtually a celebrity in my house even my 7 year old knows about pink cake box. I hope she doesn't mind me "hijacking" and probably not doing justice to her work. I have figured out the roses tho.
