Modelling chocolate roses may sound intimidating but I can assure you they are super easy to make.
Why I Started Out Making Modelling Chocoate Roses
I made my own wedding cake after I was told we’d have to pay over £1000 for a plain white fondant covered 8 tiered cake.
Now let me tell you something for nothing. I wasn’t going to pay over £1000 for a PLAIN CAKE. Do you know how many pairs of shoes I can buy with £1000!
The only alternative was to make it myself. An extravagant cake, big enough to feed all of our guests without the £1000 price tag.
I was up for the challenge but a little nervous because my sweet talents were in desserts not cake decorating. But I took the chance, and after weeks of research and sketching, I designed my dream wedding cake.
It incorporated every element of our wedding, the snow, centerpieces, colour scheme, flowers, lighting, decorations and my dress.
Now here’s the best bit, I baked, stacked and decorated it all for under £100. I also bought a few pairs of shoes too (“,)
I thought I’d share with you how I made my roses and how easy they are.
No Need For Special Cutters
I did use special cutters for my wedding cake but because I made 100’s of them I soon realised I didn’t need any thing specific. All you need is a knife to cut the petals and if you haven’t got a fondant ball tool to thin out your petal edges you can also use the end of a paintbrush you use for food, or a tooth pick.
The only thing you will need is a foam pad to rest the petals on whilst you thin out the edges.
