I was wondering if anyone could offer advice on making an anniversary cake with a spiral of roses. It is for a 30th anniversary. I planned on making 30 gumpaste/fondant roses on toothpicks and then inserting them into the finished fondant cake. All of a sudden I had a panic moment and wondered if the weight of the roses would pull out from the cake?? Could anyone with any experience assist me on this?? I love the look of these cakes but have yet to rise to the challenge. TIA
Anybody with any experience or thoughts???
I think the toothpicks would support them.
If you're scared, you can use royal icing or melted chocolate along with the toothpicks to anchor them, that's what I would do....better safe than sorry! That is, as long as you are using fondant....
Thanks for both your responses. Because I didn't get a response yesterday..I went ahead and made them today as I had to get them dried. I ended up using the small styrofoam centers and them wired them all onto long plastic covered wire, as I was afraid of the toothpicks only. They look very sturdy and I hope that they will work. I guess what I was actually referring to was called a cascade of roses. Thanks again for your help. WOW ,it takes a long time to make 30 roses even with the 5 petal cutter..whew!
