Undeniably, roses are always the main character of Valentine's Day especially the Red one! This is the wonderful idea for decorating your Valentine's cake. These fondant roses harden up and are less fragile than royal icing flowers. They do take a little bit longer than icing roses, but the end result is wonderful. This first time may take longer. Once you get a hold of it, you will be making these roses a bunch at a time. They are worth it. Not to mention they do last longer.
- Ready made fondant or make your own
- Red colour
- Cookie cutter (flower shape)
- Fondant tools
Step 2: Use smallest flower cutter and cut your 1/4 inch thick fondant. Each cutout will be the amount used to create the fondant centers.
Step 3: Roll fondant cutout into a ball.
Step 4: Roll it with fingertips to form a cone as show below:
Step 5: Make sure this cone center is as long as the width of one petal from large flower cutter.
Step 6: Wrap it with the petal one by one and complete into rose.
Step 7: Ready for any cake decoration.
