Rated 4 out of 5 by from These Fondant Ribbion Roses are really easy to do and have a great effect on a cake. Especially cakes for teenagers. They?re sophisticated enough, but not too over the top fancy like a realistic fondant rose. Believe it or not, i actually think making the realistic roses are easier though. haha.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made several of these to place on top of a wedding cake. I fanned out the top edge of the fondant slightly after the roses were rolled, and they looked great!
