A timeless and versatile technique, the ribbon rose can elevate the look of any cake or treat. Ribbon roses can be made in many sizes for variation. They can be used as simple cake decorations and also to dress up cupcakes.

The luxurious folds of a fondant drape add richness as a side garland or as skirt accents. Make a larger, more dramatic drape by cutting a larger rectangle. Be sure not to roll out fondant too thick before gathering?the weight of the drape may tear the ends.

Queen of Hearts Valentine's Day Cake is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I thought it was a beautiful cake. Unfortunately, I must have pressed the cookie stick down too far on the fondant heart, because it broke several days later when I went to put it on top. I tried to fix it but it was too weak to stay together standing up, so I laid it flat on top tier (not as impressive). Someone else told me it would also make a really cute cake for an Alice in Wonderland themed party.
