AHi everyone. This is my first time on cake central and from what I've seen this is place to get the best answer to my question. I was wondering if I can use those premade rose bases for gumpaste flowers to make royal icing roses?
i don't know why not
but if you can pipe a rose
you can pipe a big hershey kiss shape with a #10 tube or something
maybe pipe with the open coupler and just pipe big blobs with an up & down motion
well it's a down & up really and pointing straight down on the table
let them dry a little enough to pick up --insert a toothpick--finish drying
more than you ever wanted to know for the same low price
AThanks so much k8memphis. Seems that that could go pretty quick. I'm a real beginner and I keep doing the rosé tip and spinning the nail thing. Will definitely try your method.
i mean you can actually use hershey's kisses too!
it just sounded like you wanted to avoid using the soft base.
and you could skip the toothpick and just affix the dry royal bases to the waxed paper/rose nail too with fresh dollops of icing
you are welcome!!!
AYes I did want to avoid the soft base. I don't know why I can make a rose easier than I can make a base. Just goofy I guess. Really appreciate your tips!
OMG that is awesome. I do have a novice question though. How do you get the flowers off the nail?
