How to make a ribbon rose in 40 sec.

Here is a video tutorial on how to make a ribbon rose. As you can see CakeJournal is now on youtube. I am just testing this so please abstract for the poor picture and sound quality πŸ™‚ I would though really love your feedback. Is this something you would like to see more of?

  5. Hey Louise,

    I really liked video it helps to see you do it, but I still like to have it where I can print it, so I can go back to it in my file . I’m very new to this, all the information I can get is great. Thanks for your help it means alot!!!!!

  6. Hi Louise,
    Great tutorial! I love these little roses! However, mine seem to get a little cracked on top, where it’s been rolled – do you know why this might happen?

  7. Thanks so much–for all of the information you share! I had wondered, too, what you used (straight fondant or gumpaste), so a little info in the sidebar would be useful.

  8. Thank you so much for this gorgeous tutorial. I’ve just run this over at Australia Entertains for the Aussies to try! Thanks as always for your beautiful inspiration. Kathryn

  9. I know this was posted a “little” while ago but it’s great! Now I’m going to have to make a run to the store for more supplies! LOL

  10. Thank you for the post. I have just started learning how to decorate wedding cakes and this is going to be very useful.

    Thanks again.

  11. This is good,the video was not bad afterall, if the free clips that are normally sent to me by cake sites were this good i could have paid up for then, i’d really like to see more. thanks

  12. I’ve found a GOLDMINE for instructions on how to do some of the simpliest things that were causing me soooo much frustration. Your site is absolutely AWESOME!!!!!!!!!

  13. AWESOMEEE.. : >
    So thats how you do it,
    I never thought of folding the rolled fondant before shaping it into a rose.
    thank you so much…..
    love it

  14. Hi Louise!
    Most creative people are very visual and therefore are visual learners, so videos are great! You are doing great things here :o)


  15. Hi Sophie,

    I think for this one I use rolled fondant. I usually dont add Tylo powder to ribbon roses. I used a leaf cutter.

  16. Hi Louise,

    Were these made with just mmf? or did you add anything to make them harder? Also do you use molds for the leaves?

  17. loved the video but i hope you can explain while doing the stuff that you do.. you’re so awesome! God gve you such a great talent! i envy you… πŸ™‚

  18. Thank you! One of my friends gave me some great ideas for what I could show on video. So I will work on that when time allows πŸ™‚


  19. Thank you all. I am glad that you liked it and found it usefull. I will try to make more of these video tutorials in the future πŸ™‚

  20. CJ, that was very cool. As they say: pictures are worth a thousand words, but videos are even better!

    You are going to be a very busy girl! LOL
