Hi everyone. I have had a request from a bride to have David austin roses on her cake. I had never heard of them before but have googled them and they are very detailed.. Does anyone have any idea on how to make these roses from gumpaste? Is there cutters available? I have done abit of a search but have come up empty handed so far. i have attched a photo of the actual flowers to show you what they look like.
Thanks in advance for any help
I have some of these in my garden and they are spectacular!! The only way I might suggest is perhaps starting off like you would for a carnation and adding rose petals, get tooth picks or cocktail sticks ready because I'm sure however you do them there's going to be a TON of frilling! Good luck and please post pics when you do some!
The rose I made for my most recent pic was supposed to be a David Austin (white 3 tier with bling in my pics). I don't think I nailed it completely but what I tried to do was make a normal rose (I used the jem 5 petal cutter) but made sure the petals in the middle were rolled as thin as I could get them and then "frilled" them as much as I could so they folded over on themselves, and tried to get a lot more rows of petals in the centre.
Good luck - I hope that helps!
I think starting out like a carnation is a good idea, then a couple of rows with the 5 petal rose cutter over that. Definitely some experimenting! Good Luck, and post pictures when you get!
wow those are pretty amazing looking.
goodluck, the carnation idea is the way to start i think aswell
Thanks for the tips guys..
Bunsen you cake is fantastic!
i think ill try a few different ideas and then show them to the bride and she can choose which one she likes the best.. that way i'm safe lol
Ill post some pictures once i have some made
Thanks so much for all the help, i love CC!
Some people call them cabbage roses.
I can't wait to see how yours turn out. Good Luck!
wow those are beautiful, and your cakes, i'm sure you make roses, but i like the 50/50 better, i found the gumpaste broke really easy just being next to each other, or picking them up. for such a labor intensive flower, i'd use 50/50 just a thought
Here is an example of some on a cake....
Here is a site that sells them...
Still looking for a tutorial.....
