Hi everyone, ive just joined. This place is brilliant !
Im kind of new to all this, i used to watch my nan when i was little but only now Ive started to make cakes for myself lately after an idea my friend and i have come up with.
Ive been practising trying to make sugarpaste roses. I can get the petals ok but im finding that im getting a bulging bottom ! at the base of the roses ?
I cant work out what im doing wrong ? Ive watched so many tutorials but i cant quite get it right. I have no one to ask if they look right or for any advise.
Has anyone else ever had the same prob ? Or is it just me ?
I would be so greatful for any help and advise.
Sorry if this has been asked before.
That's pretty normal. Try not to squeeze the petals on so tightly at the base or try making a rose with petals on wires for the outer rows. If you ever do very large roses you will find the base isn't so bulbous.
