I found a wonderful old cake decorating book in the charity shop for $1 yesterday. It was from 1965.
I am very pleased with my efforts. I think the rose was the easiest of all the flowers to make.
I coloured the white fondant with rose pink cochineal.
Making the centre a little darker
Some of them I made the same colour right through
I will have to buy some green cochineal to make some leaves.
The buds were quite simple,I just rolled one petal.
This is the finished collection
I originally was going to make red roses,as my Granddaughter loves red,but then I thought it might look too much like a valentine cake as she is only 15
She loves flowers, so I think I will pick a bunch of the roses from the garden too.
