I have made my fair share of butter cream roses on a rose nail and used scissors to pull them directly off and onto the cake. That works fine for a few, but I need over 100 for a cake coming up this week and I figured out that I wanted them to air dry first. I started making them and have about 50 done and each is on it's own little wax square then I thought...I hope these will come back off...so I am on here to ask before I go further. Once they air dry will they come easily off the wax papers? Also what's the best method for getting them off?

Thanks so much for any input icon_smile.gif

Yes they will. Depending on how long you let them dry the icing against the wax paper will still be soft. Just use your scissors or flower liftes like you normally would. Slide the scissors between the wax paper and the rose, close them half way, lift up and peel the wax paper off, then place on your cake as you normally would.

Thanks, I kinda figured that, but even after all the time I've done cakes I occasionally have those freak out moments icon_smile.gif

I once made the BC roses on wax paper and froze them before applying to the cake. After it's frozen for half an hour, I just basically took it off the wax paper as I would do with dried RI flowes, it was that easy. Only problem is later when the roses came to the room temp, it started to sweat a bit. So I don't know if you wanted to compromise that for the ease of use.
