Additional Information

Step 1

In advance, using rolled fondant, make 20 large, 27 medium and 23 small ribbon roses. Combine 48 oz. of fondant with 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon of Gum-Tex.

Step 2

For large roses, roll fondant 1/16 in. thick on Roll & Cut Mat lightly dusted with cornstarch. Cut into strips 1 1/2 in. wide x 12 in. long. Begin rolling lightly from one end, gradually loosening roll as flower gets larger. Fold cut end under. Trim flower to desired height with scissors.

Step 3

Flower should be approximately 2 1/4 in. across; let dry in mini muffin pan lightly dusted with cornstarch. Follow same procedure for medium and small roses, using strips 1 in. wide x 6 in. long. Medium flower should be 1 1/4 in. across; small flower should be 1 in. across. Let all dry as for large flower.

Step 4

Prepare 2-layer cakes for stacked construction. Prepare for rolled fondant by lightly icing with buttercream. Cover tiers with fondant and smooth with Fondant Smoother.

Step 5

At reception: Assemble cakes. Attach roses with buttercream.

*Note: The smallest tier is often saved for the first anniversary. The number of wedding servings given does not include the top tier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an elegant relatively easy cake to make. The stylized fondant roses are quite simple, but leave yourself plenty of time to make them. I find you shouldn't let them dry completely as they are difficult to position and crack/break easily if they are too dry. I used several cupcake pans to help them keep their shape while I let them set up. I found that I needed to cut a considerable amount off the back of the flowers with scissors to help them fit more easily on the cake tier. The bride I worked for didn't have a cake topper so I made a bouquet out of the rolled fondant flowers and positioned on the top of the cake. My customer didn't want the cake covered in fondant so mine was smoothed buttercream and that worked perfectly in leu of fondant covered tiers. The simplicity of the design really adds so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Last January I used this cake as a reference. I made it larger to serve about 200 for my cousins wedding, along with a sheet cake. Instead of making fondant roses I made about 400 butter cream roses and added small dots onto the sides of the cake. I am not a pro, but I got lots of calls and compliments! I was BEAUTIFUL!! Thanks for the help WILTON!!!!!!!!!
