I was wondering if anyone could help me out with this.. I ADORE Pink Cake Box cakes... and often try to imitate their designs. They often use what they call "whimsy" roses, which I assume are basically roses made out of rolling a strip of fondant.. I'm wondering if there is a tutorial out there, or if anyone can tell me exactly how to do this.. as I've tried myself with no success. This is a picture of what I'm talking about. Thanks!!!
Some call them ribbon roses. You roll your fondant into a strip or ribbon, fold it in half lengthwise (so you don't have any raggedy/raw edges), and roll until it's the size you want. You can play around with them if you want them more open, loose, or wavy.
Those are also called ribbon roses. If you go to the ICES wev site (www.ices.org) There is a tutorial on victorian ribbon roses which would give you the basic idea. Also, wilton has a tutorial on there site. Have fun.
roll out the fondant and cut small circles, then roll them up
I was curious about this too. Thanks!
