Hi
I'm wondering if any of you guys could tell me how to make a fruit rose.
I've tried to search here and on google, flickr and youtube without any results.

I've seen pictures of a cake that has a mango rose on the entire cake (not the sides)

How do you do that?
Can you make it with other fruits than mango (mango isn't in season over here right now)
and how do you stop the fruit from getting brown?

Here's a picture of a mango rose on a tart

I really hope someone can help me

Oh yea - I've kept a newspaper clipping of a lady in Mexico who sells mangos peeled and cut into a rose and placed on a stick which are just beautiful.

Although I haven't made it myself, your picture looks like slices placed in a round pattern on top of the torte. I have done this with apples.

Forgot to mention, be sure to dip your fruit in ascorbic acid of some sort (lemon, lime, orange juice for example). Just remembered that I have also used fresh pear slices and sprinkled coarse sugar on top before baking - very pretty result!

I agree that looks like slices arranged in a flower look, just the top of the rose though.

I had no idea that lemon or such could work, sounds easy enough.
Im putting it on top of a cake with whipped cream I think =)

Sliced pears sounds even better!

Thanks guys
