Is is possible to color the tips of the petals or do you have to tint the whole thing? I'm very new to fondant and I am looking for ideas.
Thanks for any info you can give me.

If you have petal dust or luster dusk (finely powdered food coloring) you can brush the tips of the petals to add color.

Donna, what company cutters do you show in the fourth video? Also, how do you get the wire out of the rose? I am now taking a fondant/gumpaste class so all this is new to me. Thanks for your great videos!

Perhaps an alternative if time and materials is an issue.

When I did mine I accidentally ran out of fondant and had to make more for the outer petals to be finished, so the second batch of fondant ended up lighter than the first.

It was kind of neat in that it gave them some depth since the centers were a little darker. Putting different colors in different rows of petals might be interesting. (pinkish to peachish or yellowish to pinkish)
