I'm wondering if I am way behind the wagon here, but last night I tried something "new" to dry my roses made of royal icing.
I did use the "dowel" method making them, worked pretty good too, but I was having trouble getting them off the stick...so...I had my cooling rack close at hand and brought the stick through the rack and left the rose behind! I gave the stick a little twist as I pulled it through and they came off quite nice!
This morning I gave a little tap from underneath the roses and they came right off! (I have the large non-stick cooling racks)
Why wouldn't that work the same way for BC roses using the waxed paper so it's easier to handle the BC icing? I'll be trying this next time I use BC to see how it works.
Has anyone else done this?
Hey, seems like a good idea to me ... have you tried the metal finger lifter? those work well too ...
metal finger lifter?
Sound like a great idea. I will try the cooling rack myself next time I make royal icing roses. When I make Buttercream, however, I just immediatly place them on the cake as I make them.
I use wax paper. I stick the wax paper on the stick and push it down. Then I make the rose as usual. I pull the wax paper up, along with the rose.
You can do this with buttercream too.
maybe i'm confused but... won't the rose fall/sag through the holes in the cooling rack?
my cooking rack is for cookies and things of the sort... is there a special cooling rack escpecially for roses?
please provide info! i'd like to make some roses to put on cookies for my sisters birthday. TIA!
