I need to make a dozen black roses for an upcoming wedding cake. I'm used to making them with gp but since I'd have to colour it black (and I HATE tinting to black), I was wondering if anyone thought black fondant roses (made by hand, no cutters) would be ok? Any advice or tips greatly appreciated!
Why not add tylose to the black fondant to make it into gumpaste?
Not sure if you actually did the cake yet, but I agree why not do the blk roses.
Since your right black is one of those HARD colors to get, time comsuming etc...
I actually invested in a small bucket of Satin Ice already made fondant in BLACK, therefore, whenever I need black it's ready to use.
Infact, I was thinking of getting red too...but so far I haven't used ALOT and red isn't too bad to get too...just depends on how dark of a RED.
Hope this helps
Here is my first try actually at a rose, and I made a whole cake with pink and blk roses , and also blk and pink balls, as a border (i tried to make a pearl like border, but they weren't all the same size..oh well)
I can't tell if it posted, I did it twice....if u want the pic I have it and can send to e-mail.
