How thin should I roll my fondant when making Duff's roses? I've tried about 1/8" and 1/16" and they look crappy. Advice? TIA!
I've never measured my fondant thickness when making Duff's roses, but I'd think that 1/16" would be thin enough to get a decent look. But maybe a different diameter of circle would look better with the thickness you are using. I usually use a circle cutter that is about 1" or 1-1/2".
Keep in mind that these are not "life-like" roses. I sometimes intermix them with ribbon roses on a cake because they have the same whimsical look to me. Maybe if you could post a picture then I could help you troubleshoot better.
Thanks, karabeal. I would post a pic, but I only have internet on my phone, so I can't link/post pics. I am trying to make them to top some cupcakes, so I used a smaller circle cutter that is about 1". Maybe I'll try the larger cutter. At least I know now that I'm not rolling them too thin. Thanks!
I tried out the larger cutter and it worked out great. Thanks!
