Cake Decoration Sugarcraft Roses

Roses are by far the most popular flowers on a wedding cake. With practice they are easy to make and have a big impact. I almost always started with white gum paste as the colors are so easily applied after they are dry. (Red and dark flowers an exception) Using a gum paste is simple because it sets and holds its shape. A set of 4 different Rose petal cutters will give you the gradient required from bud to outer petal. Most people prefer to mount their Roses on florist wire to make them easier to handle.
