Roses - completed



These are the three sizes of roses that I have decided on for my design of the cake. The only thing that I have to do to them is to dust them with shiny, ivory petal dust, but I won't do this until they are very dry and hard. Now then, back to the next 3 dozen roses! LOL.
I cannot do any more to the cake as it is far too soon. Although rich fruit cake keeps for years, the marzipan colour can leach into the icing if it is done too soon. I always use the natural marzipan instead of the yellow, which helps to minimise this leaching, but I won't take any chances!

Talented cake decorators always amaze me. If I couldn't see the wires, I would believe these roses were real. As it is, my mouth is watering.

Wow! Your roses are absolutely stunning. I agree with Miranda. They definitely look real. The wire gives them away. I sure wish I had your talent for this. Mind you, I'd have even less time time to do anything.
