Rated 3 out of 5 by kellit from I like these roses better than the other fondant roses, they are much easier to make and I like the fun and fanciful look that they have. Time saving tip!! I prefer to just pipe a bead border with buttercream icing. It is so much easier than rolling out fondant balls (I have a hard time attaching the fondant balls and an even harder time trying to make them all look uniform).

Rated 4 out of 5 by cakedabber from These flowers come out beautiful when you use your thumb and index finger to shape the petals. Apply a little pressure in the midldle of each petal and then press a little harder as you move out towards the ends. This give the petal a more realistic look and shape of a rose. You can even press some hand made extra petals and attach them to the outside to make larger roses. With this method you have roses that are real life looking and they all come out a little bit different but still the same size. Experiment by letting some of the petals droop down on the edge of the cake for softness just like you do for the leaves.
