I need two huge roses for a cake, about 5-6 inches in diameter.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. What type of cutter should I use (round, petal shapped, 5-petal cutter). Should I increase the size of the cutter to make a large rose?

Thank you for being so gratious with your info. I love my CC friends!!

I made a pretty large rose for a cake I made recently. It covered almost all of the 6 inch tier. I used round cutters and I increased the size of the cutter as the rose got bigger.

LisaPeps posted this last night:

When Ron Ben Isreal makes over sized flowers to go on cakes, he cuts away the edge before its covered so theres a flat edge on the cake for it to sit on. He attaches the outer petals of the flower onto the fondant and then places the smaller flower (which is made as usual) onto the outer petals so it looks like one big flower.

I know the flower is slightly (alot!) larger than yours but the same principles could apply.

Heres an excellent video!
