Help - Gumpaste RosesHelp - Gumpaste RosesHi 

I am hoping someone can help me. I am making large  gumpaste roses for the first time. I am using a 1cm styrofoam ball for the centre, however when I finish I'm left with a large bell shape at the bottom which will make it hard to place on my cake. I'm guessing I am doing something obvious wrong. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. 

I have attached a couple of photos of one drying. 

Thank so much

Narelle

My suggestion is to roll that bell shape in your fingers to thin it some &/or just shave it off.

Help - Gumpaste Rosesused the Kara style thinner centers, so there's no huge bottom.  You can, of course, make them any size you want.  That's the advantage of making your own.

You can always add a couple of more rows of petals, too.
