Jo, you have not seen my earlier attempts .... tried and tried so hard to get it right (almost given up). After each rose, I'll bring to my kids and dh for their comment and each time I get so-so or 'ok loh' kind of answers. Till one day, I bought Wilton 2006 year book, that's when I start to explore again by looking at how to pipe buttercream rose in the book.... good book to have for a beginner like me.

Thanks artchoo6. Ya, you should try this out, very fun and addicting.


i told my DH.. he too long no buy roses for me so i forgot hw roses look like Razz thus the diff shape roses

Gina

That's great news. I will look out for them when I'm next down at BIY. But I guess it will cost us much more than what Vi paid in US :(

Glad

Love that book too. I learnt all my sugar paste from that book too (of course with some side advice from Vi)

Jo

Know why I want to perfect my roses? So I can give myself beautiful roses lah Very Happy . My DH never gave me roses except once many many years ago when we quarrelled. Even that time, it was my MIL that told him to buy for me cause I was pregnant at that time and I shouldn't be angry. No good for baby. Wink

Thank you all, I am glad to show you my finds... I am very happy when I find them.
The price in US$ seem very much for me, I have no idea of the prices in Singapore.
If everything goes right for me, I might consider another shiping by Christmas.

Jo, Glad your roses look so beautiful, I am happy for you.

Waw ... that's way to much.
This are small sheets:
18x14 cm the ones with leaves, fruits, shells, hearts, flowers and borders, and they are only 1 in the package. I have only 3.


18x12 cm the imprint and they are 3 type A, B and C... with 4 sheets in the package.

I was finally able to spare some time to try out the sugar paste recipe posted. Unfortunately, the dough seemed too "soft"...it was pliable, but my figurines started to sink after a while. Any ideas why and how to correct this?

I realize this is much harder than it looks - my elephant looked like an obese rat, my teddy bear looked like a wierd looking pig and my rose very bad too. A little demoralised. Any tips to share?

florissa

You are doing fine my dear. That is a pretty rose, for your first try. We all go through this stage in the beginning. It's practise, practise, practise.

If you find your sugar paste too wet/sticky, add more icing sugar until it is pliable, but does not stick to your hands. Something like bread dough. E.g. for me I have to add another 200g or more of icing sugar to Vi's recipe before my sugar paste is of the right consistency.

I always leave my sugar paste overnight in room temperature, although Glad has ever used her sugar paste immediately after making it.

Personally I find Wilton's website/books very helpful. They show you step by step guide how to do the various sugar paste figurines.

florissa... as Linda said, it works a little different to other people.
It may very well be the humid air that causes to flat out the sugar paste.
But you could adjust the softness of your sugar paste by adding either more sugar or liquid.
So you have to adjust the paste... to your part of the world Smile

Thank you Linda, you are always a real help for me Smile

Vi

My pleasure. I know you are busy (miss our chats), so I try to share my 2 cents worth, crossing my fingers and toes that I don't say the wrong thing.

I do not know if it is correct, but I always sift my icing sugar. This is to prevent any lumps.

Being a lazy me, I don't sift my icing sugar and it works well (perhaps it's the kneading that clear all the lump) Wink .

Vi, he's reducing now. That's why he wants me to join him.

Linda, I'm the one who ask him 'don't eat!', he reduced food intake more and more. Like this morning, cooked for him wanton noddles and he asked me to half the portion next time. I told him "next time... I no need to cook liao, he can go without food then" . :lol:

Oopsss! I think we are off topic now... Embarassed
