just my guess........ looks like small petal was used and they were dried on the back of a spoon, then "glued" together?????
Anyone have another idea?
OK - you'll think I've lost my mind but over a year ago I saw this rose on a pair of shoes and took a pic with the cell phone. Went home and made it out of fondant.
I started out with a ball of fondant gum glued to a toothpick. Then I made circles out of three sizes of fondant. I attached them to the ball on the toothpick the next day overlapping each slightly over the previous circle (petal).
I gradually increased the size of the petals and placed each petal round higher than the center so it would make the center section lower than the top layer. I hope that makes sense, it's really quite easy. Good luck!
Have you asked Kylie?
Thanks for the responses.
Cookie, how did you dry the petals? Do you happen to have a photo of the roses you made?
Jess, no, I didn't even think to ask her. that might be a good place to go, lol.
Tellis: if you find out, please pot it-they are gorgeous and I'd love to make them, too!
First I made a ball of gumpaste and/or fondant and using gum glue attached it to a toothpick (actually it was one of those 3-4" wooden picks). I let it dry overnight until hardened.
Then I attached the smaller inner circles using gum glue. Again I let it dry, probably an hour or so (am am impatient and don't like to wait overnight). I attached the medium circle petals and again waited for them to dry. Attached the larger circle petals and voila - a finished round rose. No, I'm sorry I never took a picture of it because I wouldn't use it that often. I did see another picture of it here on CC and will try to find for you.
Cookie, those instructions are great. I'm going to have to try them sometime soon.
AKS, I'll post a photo if I do them!
