I am making a slot machine cake and they have requested roses in the winning windows instead of 7, cherries, etc....Does anyone have any tips on how I can make 2D (totally flat) roses?

Use a flattish silicon rose mould? Or do thattechnique shown in CC magazine where they rolled up black (outline) and red (petal colour) fondant, then sliced thin slices which them looked a bit like roses face-on.

If you google Toll Painting you can see how to paint a rose and get the effect of petals and layers. Basically your start out with a T with the top of it curved in a darker color than your fondant. Make C's around it with the darker color so that the C is on its side (if that makes sense. Or a curved V?). Do rows so that they are not all symmetrical. Then you back with a lighter color in the same family (like if you used burgundy for making your C's and T, then use a red for this) and paint to the edge of the C and sort of blend it in. Use white for highlights. Its much easier if you google toll painting and see what Im talking about than trying to explain it on here.
Section option is to make if out of fondant keeping everything flat and thin. But it wont be totally flat when your dont.
Third option is brushed embroidery with royal icing!

Is there a rose patchwork cutter you could use?

This sounds like it would work....I missed that article though!

There is a patchwork cutter for an open rose at globalsugarart.com. as suggested by Coral3.

However, if it were me I would go with the edible image as Leah suggested, if that's something readily available to you.

Just personal preference and what is more available to you at this point.

Good luck with your cake...HTH
