Small gum paste roses

I just wanted to show you a little sneak peek of my next cake project. I will be using these small gum paste roses for a very special Valentine’s cake this year. But you will have to wait to see the final result.

For those who have asked about a tutorial please see this rose tutorial.

Happy Caking!

    To all of you who asked on how to make the small roses, can I tell that I have added a link to a old rose tutorial. The first 4 steps is what you need to make. The size of the roses is determined by the size of rose petal cutter that you use. I have used the two smallest cutters that I have. I made these on cocktail sticks. I will remove the roses when I am using them.

    Jenie: Have you tried http://www.flourconfections.ca/index.html ?

    Kristal: I tell that they can be eaten but they are proberly to hard to bite into. We dont eat the decoration much here.

    Alessandra: They taste like sugar, but they are not nice to eat though.

    Serina Wilson: It could be because of the mmf “working” overnight.

    Kelly cullinane: You can make them on cocktail sticks but to place them on CC just place in the frosting or “glue” them on with a little melted choc or royal icing if its on fondant.

    Louise,
    These are just stunning!!! I have made roses from your tutorial before and they turned out ok…Yours are much better. I was wondering, could I make them on cocktail sticks and then just stick them in cupcakes or how would you make them not on wires. I would really appreciate your advice, thanks again:)
