I'm trying to make some gum paste roses for a wedding cake due Tuesday with a few being full bloomed roses. I have seen beautiful roses with rose petals on the wires than they are added to the rose only on the last layer. When I add mine I can kind of see a gap and can't really find any more information about them. I have spent hours making them and made them all slightly different, some the same hoping to figure out how to attach them but I just cant seem to get them to dry right? Was wondering if anyone has used rose petals on wires or knows of a tutorial. I'm kind of desperate and normally I search the internet for hours but this is my busiest weekend of the yr. Did a quick search and didn't really find the info I need Got 4 cakes plus a cookie and cupcake donation all due in the next five days. Thanks for reading! I hope someone actually replies to my post, I have never gotten a response lol.
I had a similar problem, ended up making fondant/gumpaste blend instead no wires met people actually ate them well, kids ate them lol. They went together faster and turned out nice. Check my last wedding cake photo.
Hi, I just made roses for the first time 2 weeks ago for a wedding cake. It took about 5 days to make 50 of them. This is because you need to let them dry overnight between each row of petals. Mine were still a bit soft at 5 days, so the more time you give them the better. I watched a video on UTube by Edna that was REALLY helpful. If you google gumpaste roses by Edna it should come up. There are about 5 different videos, each shows a "how to" for the next step in the sequence. Hope this helps
