I'm ordering something online for a cake that I have coming up and for another cake I need 50 red gumpaste roses. I found that I can buy them for less than I charged the customer so it might be worth me time just to buy them premade. Has anyone ordered them before? For under a dollar a rose, isn't that a fairly cost efficient way to do it?

Depends on where you are buying them on-line and the quality of the work. I have ordered gumpaste stargazer lilies and roses on-line, it was well worth the investment and my time. HTH

I buy nearly everything. I don't have the time to make their any more, and they're SO inexpensive, I can add profit. icon_smile.gif

I purchase most from www. avalon deco .com It's a small biz like me and I like to give my biz to other small businesses. Also, if you order by 3 pm Eastern time, he'll get it packed and to the shipper the same day. Ii regularly order as late 2:55 pm and have my order in hand 2 days later. Flowers are beautiful and things are well packed. David's one of the "good guys." Say hi from me if you call.
