Questions, questions from me, sorry! I cannot do regular roses; not directly onto the cake, not on a nail, not a stick. Has anyone heard of or done a "reverse" rose? I have heard of it before. How do you do it? (If you post a video link, my computer for some reason won't let me watch videos on Youtube. So sorrry.....) And HOW do you do an apple blossom? I have tried so many time, and get blah. Thanks everybody for your help. I would especially like to thank JGMB- you've been a GREAT help! ~Rachel~

I haven't heard of reverse roses before so I'm interested in any replies, but have you tried duff roses? If you do a search in the sketches and templates section of the gallery you'll get a few pages of instructions. I thin the top edges of my circles to get a more natural result.

Yes, duff roses are so easy to make! The first time I tried I made at least 5 in only a few minutes! I hated making roses, but I actually enjoyed making them this way icon_smile.gif

Here's a tutorial:

I did watch a video on youtube by serious cakes on the reverse rose.
She piped it right on the cupcake, start with the outter petals first then work your way to the middle.
