I know you are the queen of links! I tried searching for how to do ribbon roses from fondant, got 1 page of topics with none of them matching what I needed and then nothing after that. Can you help me?? icon_smile.gif I know this topic has been covered and even checked you tube and could find nothing. TIA!!! icon_biggrin.gif

I'm no Jan, but here's a forum that might get you started:

http://cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-648245-ribbon.html+roses

Here's a hint on how to search successfully:
When you go into forums, hit the small search box (first white one on the long row of tabs), then type in the topic you want in the top small white box on the right. Change the search to 'all terms" and then drop below to change choice to "topic only" --this usually narrows down the field for which you are searching.


Good Luck!

I've done ribbon roses on one cake. I thought, "these things are simple. No problem." Wrong!!! I wasn't happy with a single one I made.

Thanks so much everyone! I have tried and always hate how they turn out. I'm going to go back and read all of the threads you posted and try again...hopefully with better results! icon_lol.gif

Are these the type of ribbon roses you are talking about?? Because I found them really easy using this tutorial...

That cake is super cute zoesmom!!! I love it! When I tried mine before I didn't fold in half and so the edge that was showing ontop was like the cut looking edge. I can't wait to try this again! And did I say that I LOVE your cake?? icon_lol.gif Colors are great, design is super cute! Love it!

Thanks so much Michelle104!! It is one of my favorite cakes, and I love how easy the roses were. I too had tried these roses without folding them over and was totally not happy with the results, so I think you will be happy with these ones! Have fun!
