I'm making a bridal shower cake that has a border of gumpaste small roses, i really did not charge full price for this cake because its for a co-worker, so i really don't want to invest all that time to make the roses by hand....so does anyone know of a tip i could use to make roses, like the ones on cupcakes, i think for cupcakes its 1D, i want that effect but smaller

thanks

You said they were Gumpaste flowers or buttercream?

For gumpaste, just use the duff roses. Cut out three small circles of fondant/gumpaste, then ley them out in front of you in a line, but overlapping slightly, and then roll them up. Done.

Actually, if I'm not mistaken, each set of three circles for Duff roses will give you two flowers. Once you lay the circles out and roll them up, you cut them in half horizontally. I've made lots of these and I love the way they look, especially when there are a lot of them.

The roses in my cake, were done using the duff method. I used the circle bit of any icing tip to cut out the small circles.

Here's the tutorial.

It really isn't that time consuming and you won't be able to get the same look using buttercream.
