I've always loved sugarpaste roses...beautiful and elegant...and perfect for so many occasions. There are so many varieties and gorgeous colors - but sometimes it can be challenging to get the petals and overall shape just right. In fact, when I started working with sugarpaste, many of my mentors and teachers told me that the rose would be one of the simplest flowers to learn, but one of the most difficult to master.
So...I've been practicing...a lot...and thought I would share some of the roses I have created recently. Here is a simple open rose - I might use a bunch of these mixed in with other flowers in a bouquet:
A larger rose with a more vintage feel - I might use this on top of a small cake with some tiny white filler flowers:
And a very large garden rose - I felt this one needed to stand alone on the top of a cake with the addition of only a pair of rose leaves:
It was a lot of fun to make...and I'm looking forward to practicing more...but the next round will include lots of color! More coming soon!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
