AHi everyone, I'm after some tips on how to make a perfect rose. What are the best techniques to create a realistic rosé? Is it best to use petal cutters? Or are there ways to make a rosé without petal cutters. I have to make roses to go on a engagement cake, I have tried making them before but I was not happy with the outcome. Is it a case of practise makes perfect? Thanks Nina

yes it is --the practice makes perfect thing


but you can use a heart cutter or a round cutter or an oval


but i mean there are plenty of dedicated rose cutters


and i have a veiner for roses- i it -- it's a little silicone hamburger press type thing


but i've made plenty of rose without it too--it's not necessary


try briefly drying some of the petals on the bowl of a spoon before you attach them--helps the outer petals keep their shape


use enough glue to moisten not saturate


make your 'cones' in advance so they are nice & dry if you make your own


i haven't looked but i'd be surprised if you tube did not have a ton of videos on rose making

I have used round cookie cutters made into oval and it worked for me here's a link     HTH
