Here’s a video on how I make roses. It’s pretty easy to make one of these babies… just remember to wrap those first couple of petals puuurty tight so you can’t see the center “ball” of gumpaste (’cause I’m a putz and made that part a li’l off camera in the video).
I used to only use Satin Ice gumpaste for most of my flowers, but since the wonderful world of modeling chocolate has been opened up to me, I now often make these same roses using that magical medium… especially when I’m in a pinch and don’t have the extra time to let the petals dry.
Works like a DREAM I tell you. Well, as long as you’re not living in a tropical rain forest, anyway. Heat & Humidity = the Enemy.
