My step daughter wants roses like these on her cake. Can someone please tell me how to make them or is their a tutorial available? I know how to make Duff Roses and also regular roses but these I have never done.

That's fairly easy...
Take a long strip of fondant, fold it lenghtwise without making a 'sharp' fold and start rolling from one end. Make sure to squize the bottom of the rose as you go along. When you want to finish the rose just bring the strip down to the bottom and pinch it off. (That's how I make them)
Hope it makes sense.... Otherwise just play around with it, I'm sure you'll get results pretty fast.

She makes ribbon roses in this video - got to about 3:00 mark.
The only difference is that you would make a wider ribbon in the beginning so that you can fold it in half as mentioned above.

They are fairly easy!

Well, here's a cake I made last week in a last minute decision. I went with the ribbon roses and this is how they turned out. It was my first try at ribbon roses. I guess they came out okay!
