Please could some advise me as to making chocolate roses. I have been asked to make a two tier Golden Anniversary cake. I would let to make the roses on cocktail sticks so I can position them exactly right for the design I want to create.

Kind regards

Im a newbie too . Still havent uploaded any photos . I found making chocolate roses with modeling chocolate a nightmare ! The chocolate kept melting in my hands . With fondant its so much easier . I will send you a tutorial tomorrow . Have to look it up . You will probably have loads of answers from people who know better by tomorrow anyway. Try putting "Chocolate Roses" in the search option here and see what happens. Good luck !

Hi, i make and teach chocolate roses all the time. Never have put on a cocktail stick, but i am sure you can. I took a chocolate rose demo at ices several years ago and this lady makes them on wires , just like she does g/p flowers. Anyway, here is a link to a great tutorial. I have some in my pics on golden wedding anniversary cake. I outlined the edges with gold dust mixed with vodka. hth

you may consider candy clay as well! while a little different than "true chocolate" it has a chocolate taste and i find it easier to work with.
