I have always used the Wilton bc recipe under fondant. I typically will do a crumb icing only so the bc is not too thick. I have had several outdoor, summer weddings and have never had problems with this method. As for the fondant roses, I haven't made them in a while but I found a technique on this site, if memory serves, for a very simple rose. I made them and loved them!! They were simple but elegant. If I can find the instructions, I'll post them on this string for you. Good luck!!
