I watched a rerun of Fabulous Cakes yesterday (the Boston one I think) and remembered I wanted to ask if any of you make your roses around lollipops? The lady that was making the Phantom of the Opera cake did that I thought Wow, what a time saver.
Anyone have remarks or replies on how this worked for them?
I have never seen them made on lollypops but I have seen them made on a stick.
I saw that too!! I thought it was really cool!
I think that I should have mentioned that they were Fondant or Chocolate roses.
I did see that one! I always wanted to try that! It seems like it would save time if I didn't have time to let the bud set.
Wilton sells buds now; have you seen those? They are like $5 for a bag of 24 or something like that. I think the lollypops would be less expensive and more tasty if someone opted to eat one. And there's a built in stick.
I make large roses on small skewers, using rice crispie treats for the cone. Learned this from Glenda Galveze in Texas.You have to let the rice crispie cone dry first. Then use g/p . This way is good for making large roses. She has a cd with this way and adding pearls around bows. It is a great cd. her site is auntglendascakes.com
Those cake pops are beautiful! I think I'll try that and see how they come out for me!
I saw that show the first time and was amazed. I have made those roses. It looked like she used tootsie pop suckers. I tried them first and the roses turned out good but on the larger side. Then I made them using smaller Dum Dums suckers and they turned out more like the real size roses. I like making them for cake when theres kids around. They love eating them..lol...
I'll try to download a picture on cc so you can see mine.
I grew up in Latin America and this was a common practice to pipe roses onto small lollipops. I remember all of us kids wanted the slice with the rose so we could eat the lollipop inside Next time I do roses for a child's cake I'll do the same.
