I am planing on doing a vase cake for my mothers birthday at the end of the week & wondered if anyone can help me ! I am not sure how to get the chocolate roses on wire. I have done all kinds of roses material wise & she wants them to edible (hates gumpaste)! I just cant figure out how to get the chocolate roses on the wire. Wired flowers are a new thing for me.
Thanks for any advise you can give!
tootsie rolls! use them just like you would gumpaste... i do this for my 2 year old all the time and she thinks i'm the coolest.
hI , i have never wired chocolate roses, but have seen it at the ices convention. use your modeling clay recipe. Make all the centeres first. let set up few days. then make each petal. am i making sense. this is not using the all in one cutter , but making each petal seperate. you don,t even have to use a petal cutter. just put the ball of chocolate under plastic . mash out a litte. thin edges and wrap around cone. again,i have never done this on wires. if it get too warm they could fall off wire. maybe someone on here does it on wires and sees this. the lady that demoed says she does it all the time.
Thanks You very kindly! I will try my hand at the icer 101 method as I need to color the chocolate red. And yes it makes plenty since. I have done the chocolate roses like that before but have never allowed them to set up just kept on wrapping! Thanks again!
hi, this is also interesting, hope it will help, making the paste this way would be even stronger. and it is still good. have made this before at our cake meetings
I don't know how narrow your vase will be or how many wired roses you'll be using, but keep in mind that they can weaken your cake causing it to split. You might consider placing all of them into one central hollow tube to keep the wires from ripping through your cake.
Thank you 101Icer for the link.... i will definently give this a try.. I can see why this would make the paste stronger due to the liquid sugar...Thank you.... thank you ... thank you...Also CWR41... I had never thought of that ( the cake spliting from the weight of the flowers)... would putting them into the one tube still allow me to arrange them or will that make them all appear to be coming from the same place?

Yes, it would appear that they're all coming from the same place--the opened top of the flower vase. I don't know the diameter... if it's narrow (like a bud vase), or wider (like a full-size jar or pot). If it's wider, you could use a few hollow tubes, but not too many because the inside of your cake will look like swiss cheese and fall apart. HTH.
Hi I hope that this is not against any rules but I wanted to thank you all so much for all of your advise on how to go about accomplishing this cake. I have posted the link below (not really sure how this work but it is a pic from my cakecentral folder). MY MOTHER LOVED IT! SHE SAID IT WAS JUST WHAT SHE WANTED.
