Tint gum paste Christmas red/red-red combination. Use large rose cutter and instructions from gum paste flower cutter set to make 25 gum paste roses with two rows of petals on 6 in. wires. Reserve excess gum paste. Let dry 24 to 48 hours on flower drying rack. Brush with red Color Dust. Wrap wires with florist tape. Keep out of direct light to prevent fading.

Position cake on pedestal. Use tip 3 and red icing to pipe bead bottom border.
