Ribbon roses are the easiest flowers one can make from fondant. They are such a simple way to make your cakes and cupcakes look ELEGANT!
Best of all, you don't need any fondant cutters :D
Roll out fondant in any color you want. I chose to make my roses in pink.
Using a pizza cutter or a fondant cutter, cut ribbons which are 1 inches wide and 8 inches long.
If you want to make smaller roses, cut strips which are thinner and shorter.
Fold over one corner of the strip.
Start rolling and continue all the way to the endâ€¦
â€¦until it looks like this.
Cut the end of your rose with scissors.
Discard the end.
Smooth out the bottom of your rose using your fingers.
Let these dry overnight. They will become hard or semi-hard and then place them on your cakes/cupcakes!
Pretty easy... right? :P
