I use a mix of fondant/gumpaste approx 50/50.
thank you sooo much the tutorials are a great help.. when u say gumpaste is that flower paste?
AYes it is. By the way, the easiest one (at least for me) to make a rose is the way on cakesdecor. The best part is that you don't even need any cutters. If you try it this way, just let the petals dry a bit on the spoons but still pliable. This is how I made these and I think they are the best I've done so far.[IMG ALT="Decided to try again to make a rose without any equipment at all. This is done by just placing a piece of fondant between 2 pieces of plastic & shaping into a petal with your nail."]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3017003/width/350/height/700[/IMG] [IMG ALT="My favorite way to make roses. No tools needed. I find that I get a much thinner petal this way."]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/2956678/width/350/height/700[/IMG] [IMG ALT="Wanted to practice some roses since I've never been truly happy with previous results. Pretty happy with these. Thanks to Ciccio Cakes tutorial on facebook."]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/2914793/width/350/height/700[/IMG] After I finished then, just added a little petal dust to the center and edges.
wow those roses are amazing!!
