Ive been baking cupcakes.
I love creating these little morsels of prettiness
The rolled roses are so simple. Written instructions below
I made these specially for my little man for school lunches.
They were a slight disaster as the icing went abit strange on me... but Im sure you get the idea of what I was trying to acheive.
Rolled Rose instructions:
Use a small amount of gum paste or fondant.
Roll out a small ball of fondant approx 1 in deep and about 3 in long... so it is a long narrow strip.
Roll from one end making sure that the petals dont stick together.. there has to be a gap so it looks llike a rose, as shown in the picture below.
Cut the bottom so rose is the desired size and pop it into the icing on the cupcake.
For the little leaf I used a tiny ball of fondant or gumpaste.
I moulded it in my hand with my finger to create a teardrop shape. I then pinched it a little at the round end that is how to make a leaf.
