About How many gumpaste roses will I need to go around the base of a 9 inch cake?
I mean kinda depends on how big the roses are --outline your 9" pan on a sheet of paper -- even on newspaper with a marker is fine -- on that line draw a circle how big you want each rose to be and make that many circles all the way around -- bam!
K8 hit it out of the ball park w/that answer :)
thank you lynnie
For a nine inch cake and my average size roses, I would say about 12.
