Fondant Roses | My Attempts On Gumpaste And Fondant Roses | Sugar Paste Roses
Roses! Aren't they beautiful!! And trying hands on making roses using fondant is a dream to many. And ever since I started making fondant cakes I've been keenly interested in trying them <3 So here's a compilation of some roses I've made till date, right from my first attempt :)
So. here's my first attempt!! The No Tool Fondant Rose, my very first attempt! With homemade fondant. Had a lot of flaws but I was soooooo much happy about its outcome!
Frankly this was my second attempt :) I tried the rose bud with gum paste and yes there's a clear difference!!!
Roses on a rainy day :( Fondant and rain together never work out.. It was pouring heavily yet managed to make a few roses!
Roses for an anniversary cake!
Rose Buds for a wedding cake :)
And after a lot of attempts here's one I did recently for a wedding cake! :) One of my favorite work till date! The wedding cake was also a super hit :)
Practice (and some dedication needed too) makes perfection (almost!)
I still need to work on it...
So, Should I use fondant or gumpaste for flowers???
With fondant, or gumpaste or fondant-gumpaste mix you definitely get good flowers, but with gum paste I find that making thinner petals were easier, had a lot of elasticity and dried a little faster than fondant. But.. I have tried roses with fondant alone too, they come out great. But you need to be extra careful and fondant takes a little extra time to dry.
