  • Small rolling pin

Let's Get Started:

  • Break off a gumball sized piece of well kneaded fondant. Roll Into a Ball.

STEP-2-Roll-Mini-Rose-Tutorial-edited.jpg#asset:18460

  • Flatten ball evenly into an oval shape between fingers or with rolling pin to about 1/8 inch thickness

STEP-3-Roll-Mini-Rose-Tutorial-edited.jpg#asset:18461

  • Pinching one end of the oval begin rolling. 

STEP-4-Roll-Mini-Rose-Tutorial-edited.jpg#asset:18462

  • Keep top edge of oval even then gradually begin to taper the rolled fondant down so that the edge ruffles end above where you first began rolling.

STEP-5-Roll-Mini-Rose-Tutorial-edited.jpg#asset:18463

  • When you reach the end of the oval, begin to pinch the bottom of the rosette between your index finger and thumb so that it comes to a point and the excess fondant on bottom falls off.

  • Place mini-rose in egg carton to dry firmly before applying to cake. (about ½  hour to 1 hour is plenty).
