would be good for a large rose? I have the Wilton cutters, but want something bigger, but still manageable.
TIA

I love the all in one rose cutters and use the largest two most of the time.

It looks like a five petal flower, all connected at the middle. You cut three or so sets, and use to make roses.

If you look at the wedding cake in my photos (it's the only one icon_biggrin.gif) I used the 110 mm rose cutter to make the roses in the topper, and the 80 mm cutter to make the ones on the cake itself...if that gives you a hint about the sizes.

Thank you Texas Rose! I ended up ordering the 100mm last night, and can't wait! I measured my Wilton cutter, and it is like 55mm or so.
Do you make gumpaste cones for the center, or use styrofoam?

Gumpaste cones. I am too cheap to use styrofoam. I tried lollipops and I liked the fullness that I got from using them, but the gum glue made them melt a bit, so for making white roses I could only use the white lollipops..otherwise the rose might develop an odd-colored drip while hanging upside down to dry.

Oh, I forgot to mention, you'll love them compared to the Wilton one. The Jem ones cut in between the petals, so you don't have to.
