I've been looking for a tutorial on how to make swirl flowers, I'm not sure if the're roses but I can only find the ones made with buttercream. The're more like fondant ribbon flowers, but the big ones. Does anybody know where can I find it?

I'm trying to include a picture but I don't know how but is the 4th cake on this website:


Thank You!

Bettylleana, I've also been asked to make that cake, and after a lot of internet searching, I think it was originally made by Luisa Galuppo from Quebec. I sent her an email a while back asking if she had a tutorial to purchase for it, but have never gotten a reply. I'm sure she's one busy lady. If I do hear back i'll be sure to let you know. I think the flowers do look fairly simple to make, just very time consuming. I plan to give it a trial run soon, by cutting strips of fondant/gumpaste mix and making the flowers in assorted sizes by starting from the outside and working  your way in to fill in the center of the flower. Then once all the flowers are on, just fill in the empty spots with extra strips to make it look full. I hope im on the right track anyway! lol  What I would love to know is if anyone has seen a mold to make the boarder on that cake? Isn't that beautiful? I have a feeling its individually placed on there one thing at a time, but I sure would love to know if anyone has ever seen a mold to make that boarder, and if so, where it can be purchased at.

Thank you for your answer. The bride finally decided that she wants buttercream swirl roses, but yes! It's a beautiful cake, and the boarder as well. If you give it a try show me the pictures ;)
