How to I make this large gumpaste rose and attach it to a buttercream cake so it doesn't fall off? I hope I attached the link correctly!
How about making the center of the rose on a wooden dowel and attaching some of the outer petals to it, inserting it into the cake at a downward angle? I could make the individual larger petals on wires and insert them into straws?? It seems like it could be easier than this. Any ideas?
I have no idea, but that cake is fantastic! Good luck!
Sylvia Weinstock had many of her large flowers made on what appeared to be bamboo skewers on a TV special I saw a few years ago. Don't see why your idea wouldn't work. The individual petals should stay in place with just gum glue - dont' think wires would be necessary.
