I use fondant not gumpaste and the cutters and veiner press molds are easier to use than trying to mold them yourself.Check out this site they have several cutters and silicone molds you can buy.

Royal icing or buttercream? You will likely need to practice a bit though - search on youtube for videos.

There are Youtube videos on how to make fondant roses...they are easy and you can add a little flavoring to your fondant if you want. thumbs_up.gif

I just made roses from modeling chocolate for the first time and I am hooked! They were so easy to make and tasted really good too! The only downside is that they wouldn't last too long in hot weather.

I almost never use gumpaste. Just about every flower you can make in gumpaste can be done in fondant. They do break more, and take longer to dry, but it can be done.
