White gum paste roses

Gum gum paste roses smallpaste roses are a time intensive process, but in the end, they look so delicate and beautiful!

It takes a few days to create these, because the buds need to harden. You simply take a small amount of gum paste, shape it into a teardrop shape, stick it on the end of a piece of spaghetti, and let it dry. (The flowers pictured here were created using the Wilton method.)

The flowers on the right are Day 2, when I’ve added another layer of petals. Adding one more layer (below) creates a large and open blossom.

Here’s a question I have- once you’re ready to use the flowers, do you just stick the piece of spaghetti in the cake?! That’s what I did! Once it’s time to eat, you pull them out? How weird is that! Please comment below if you have a suggestion!
