|You can also use flower modelling paste to make your rose|
|Roll your gumpaste using corn starch to stop it from sticking|
to about 2-3mm thick. Cut out 7 circles using your round cutter.
|Keep your circles under a glass or cup to stop them from|
drying out. Store unused gumpaste in plastic or clingwrap.
|Working with one circle at a time, squeeze the top half of the|
circle between you thumb and forefinger.
|Once squeezed, your gumpaste should be about the|
same thickness as a real rose petal.
|To make the core of your rose, gently roll your|
circle inwards to create this spiral
|Use your paintbrush to add a tiny amount of water to seal|
the petal in the spiral shape. Don't add too much water or
you will end up with a sticky mess!
|Working with one petal a time, squeeze the top edge of the|
circles to make more petals. Place the new petal over the centre
of the join of the rose core. Wrap the petal around the core.
Use a paintbrush with a little water to get them to stick
|Keep adding squeezed petals, overlapping the centre of the|
new petals where the previous petals have met
|Slowly add more petals and your rose is starting to take shape|
|Once you have added all the petals, tease the petals open using your fingers|
|Trip the bottom of use rose using a spatula or knife,|
so that you have a flat-bottom on your rose
|That's your rose finished!|
|I made my rose into a cupcake topper, by adding a|
white fondant plate on the bottom and a bow that
I made from a silicone mold. Let your rose and
topper dry hard uncovered, overnight
|Then add your topper to a delicious cupcake and don't they look great!|
|Serve these warm from the oven and they are even more delicious.|
|A wonderful childhood memory|
