Did you use wires, toothpicks, skewers or anything to make the rose?

Hi, the roses are on toothpicks at the moment so they can dry a bit before i attempt to put them on the cake

I personally will just stick the roses to the cake (with the tootpick) or maybe you can use melted chocolate to stick it. Hopefully someone else can help.

Thats kinda what I was thinking, I might have to trim the bottoms a bit before I do that. Thanks!!

I've done roses going down the side of a cake before and what I did was to make the roses in advance so they air-dry, and then attach them with buttercream. hth icon_smile.gif

I would suggest either buttercream or royal icing, especially if the cake is covered with fondant. You wouldn't want the roses (on the toothpick) to "stretch" or tear the fondant. HTH

Hey everyone! Thank you so much for the suggestions! There is a picture in my gallery! I used a tooth pick with some of the roses and buttercream with the others. Thanks again!
