Has anyone used two different sizes of the five petal rose cutter when making a rose? I was wondering if you can use a larger cutter for the outer petals. I treated myself and bought one for my birthday but I wasn't sure which one most people use. I think I bought #85 and it doesn't seem like it will be a large enough rose. What number cutter would you recommend for a medium to large size rose? Thank you.

One thing I do is if I want my roses bigger and using the same cutters I already own, I make my gumpaste thicker when I cut it out. Then I use my ball tool to stretch it bigger than the normal size.

Thank you for responding. I am getting ready to go to the cake store and I wanted to know which size most people purchase.

I bought mine at a local cake store for 5.99 sure saves time not having to make each petal. The lady I watched on you tube used a 90mm I must have bought 85mm. They are called Jem easy rose cutters. The 100mm looked to big.

I use the 110 mm Jem cutter most often. I've got the 90 mm which I also use, but I bought a smaller size...maybe 60 mm and the petals were just too small for my big hands to work with.
