Making Fondant Rose

I'm now trying my hand at making fondant flowers and my first attempt is trying to do a rose. The rose does seem to be one of the most popular of all flowers that grace most cakes and cupcakes. So why not try this!

I went to Phoon Huat, which is not far from my office, during lunch time to buy a pack of Wilton ready made fondant. Unfortunately Phoon Huat didn't have white fondant so I had to settle for another type of fondant which was important from South America, cost was under $7 for 500 gm.

I had previously bought a Wilton rose cutter set which I was planning to use on this project. Unfortunately the cutter did not succeed no matter how hard I tried - even following the instructions did not work. Maybe the fondant was too soft ... but I did add cornstarch! Anyway I came across a video clip from You-Tube on how to make fondant roses. You'll be amazed at the amount of things you can learn from You-Tube ..... a wonderful online library of information .. plus sometimes crap as well !

This is the end result .... still not perfect but it's a start. Just need to put in a bit more practise that's all!



This is the web link if anyone is interested to try this:

Jo, fondant + gum trag or + tylose powder is good for modelling. This will help the model dry hard. But for flowers, I use gum paste.

I tried making the roses with wilton gumpaste, but it keeps wilting after a few hours (i stick it on foam like yours as well). How do you dry your roses and keep it from wilting long enough to decorate on the cake etc.
