Someone posted a link on here on how to do fondant roses quick and easy without a cutter. The one where you basically just wrap pieces of fondant on top of one another to form the rose. Well, I have to say, I tried it and it was quick and easy!

I just picked some up and started working with it. It got a little sticky because it had been sitting out and I had already put away all my other supplies so I couldn't make it as thin as I would have liked. And I did this in literally 5 minutes for the first time ever. So I think, with a little more time and practice, these roses can be fantastic. Thanks to who ever posted the link to making these!

Here is the link to the picture of it.

This method can also be done with gumpaste and chocolate modelling paste.

And this is how they did it in the time before there were cutters. Some old-school-style instructors still use this method.

And you did a great job on it.

Excellent job! I was thinking that since we're not doing Thanksgiving until Saturday, maybe I should do a bunch of fondant cake decor tonight. icon_wink.gif How can these be stored so that they last a long time?
