I need to make some large roses for a cake I am making soon and I have seen a couple of options about what to use as the center. The video that was recently posted with Francesca's roses used the Styrofoam egg as the center but I think I also saw a tutorial that used RKT as the center. I just can't remember where I might have seen it. Has anyone tried making roses with the RKT?
I haven't see anything with rose centers made with RKT. How big are these roses and what are you making them out of?
I am going to use the JEM 110 mm rose cutter and make them with gumpaste.
I don't have any JEM cutters, but if you use the RKT, cover it with the gumpaste. It may be hard to get a smooth appearance, but once you cover it with the petals, any defects should be hidden. I'm just rattling on to keep this post where someone else who's done these can help out!
Thanks! I appreciate that
I googled it, and found this on Cake Journal:
Those are gorgeous roses!!
The styro eggs can get expensive if you are needing lots of roses. First Impressions has a mold with I think about six cavities so you can make your own. Nickolas Lodge did a demo at ICES. They also have a rose pedal veiner I believe. Good luck.
