Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love making these roses. I always use straight gum paste as it dries to a porcelain finish. You also get a thinner petal for a more natural look. I also make these roses in white and then paint them with luster dusts, you can achieve a softer look or more dramatic look depending on how you apply the dusts. I also use Jelly Belly jelly beans for the centers. I choose a color that is the same as the gumpaste I am using. Just push the bean onto a toothpick instead of the center piece from step 1 and proceed with the rest of the steps

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I always use 100% gum paste for these roses. I've tried using 100% fondant and a 50/50 blend, but prefer the gum paste. The gum paste alows me to get thinner petals which also means a lighter rose. The lighter the rose, the easier it is to keep it in place on a cake. It's really sweet to put one small rose in the center of a cupcake. No other decorations needed and once you make them they keep forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this rose for the first time this month for a wedding. We had only a couple of hours time to practice before making the actual flowers that we used on the cake. Considering that, I would say it was easy. However, I was confident about doing it because I know how to make icing roses. The instructions were perfect. When I had problems, I reread them and they answered any questions I had or addressed any problem I was having. If you want to create a gorgeous rose, follow the instructions CAREFULLY. Great tutorial!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These Full Bloom Fondant Roses are absolutely stunning. And surprisingly, not very hard to make. I?ve made then a few times now, but even the first time I went through the steps, my roses looked just like the picture. Just on Mother?s Day I was helping my friend make a cake for her mom, even her being a novice cake decorator, her roses looked almost exactly like the one pictured here. This was her first time ever using/touching fondant mind you. Steps are very clear & helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These roses are time consuming and require a little practice but are well worth it, as they make a very beautiful real looking rose. You need to make them ahead of time to give the middle time to dry before you start to make the rose and then drying time after the rose is complete. They look great on a cake. I make them on floral wire for use in a bouquet and have used them on top of and in the middle of wedding cakes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Making fondant roses was a lot of fun and not that difficult. The only thing that is difficult about these fondant roses is that they take a lot of time to make, but they look great and are worth the effort. Much easier than making the buttercream roses and it's fun to make up lighter or darker shades of a single color and pair them together. It gives more depth to a final project and looks even more realistic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It takes a little practice to get really pretty flowers, but these instructions are great. The pictures really show how to assemble the flowers and how to use the ball tool to make realistic edges. It takes a few tries to figure out the right pressure to use with the ball tool to get the thin, rippled edges, but if you mess up you just reroll the fondant. It is basically fool-proof.
