Hi all!

I was hoping I can get some input or even some picture examples. I really enjoy making Fondant Ribbon roses. They are really easy compared to the traditional Gumpaste or BC roses.

Do you think they are "formal"? I have a Police academy graduation cake due in a few weeks. I am in the planning stages now. I wanted to do some matching color roses. However, I want to do ribbon style roses. Do you think I can make them look formal?

If you take a look at my photos, the spider-man and 40th cake have the roses on them.

Have you ever done ribbon roses for a wedding???

Thank you in advance!
Michael

I think most people would consider fondant ribbon roses to be more on the whimsical side, but your black & white roses on the 40th cake do have an elegant flair to them in my opinion. I guess it depends on what color roses they want (if bright or primary colorsthey won't look so formal). Your roses look great... perhaps you could suggest the color you'd like to make them, and see if they'd agree. I vote yes... it could work!

I saw a beautiful ribbon rose wedding cake on the Martha Stewart site and it was quite elegant.

ok, sorry I just looked it up and the ribbon roses were made from swiss meringue. But I bet you could get just as elegant with fondant. Here is the link

and here is a link to a photo of the finished cake, I think it is stunning!

You DO NOT need to practice!!!! The way you make your ruffled ribbon roses (like on your B&W cake)... they're FAB!!!! Continue making them as you already do--your talent shows. I wouldn't change a thing.

Someone posted a cake recently with some GORGEOUS yellow ribbon roses. I forgot to fave it and have been searching the galleries for it to ask how they were done. They looked more "real", but they didn't have the teardrop wrap on a formed petal rose. The entire top of the cake was covered in them. It was beautiful...if someone can find that cake it shows that they can look very elegant.
