1. Firstly, take a small piece of fondant and shaped it like a cone (as per picture below)


2. Secondly mold and flatten another piece of fondant (picture 2)


3. Wrap the flatten (picture 2) fondant onto the cone shaped fondant (picture 1)


4. Make more of flattened fondants (like picture 2) and continue wrapping up the cone as per below pictures.




5. Lastly, cut off a small portion of the bottom of the rose and mould it lightly (it will probably end up like this after moulding)


6. Finally, you have a small rose which you can then use to decorate your cakes with.

Hi May,

May I ask how you keep the MMF from sticking? I have tried once but couldn't really make any figurines out of it as it was very sticky and I had to keep dusting it with either icing sugar or corn starch. Very disheartened, so how?

Your rose looks nice.

Hi Wendy,

Thanks for your compliments.

Usually I will add icing sugar until it is no longer sticky. Once more sugar is added, it should not turn sticky already.

If it turned too dry however, try use some shortening. Not too much, just a little will do.

Regards...May

proportions or ratios of mm and water to icing sugar is important in the melting process. so you must follow exactly. if you follow May's recipe(which she took from Wilton's forum), that recipe works.

if you want to add any liquid food colouring into the MMF, the dough will get sticky again.

so thus, its best to get the gels. Cheeky grin

I made bread roses (handicraft) using this method too.

My ingredient are :-
1. Flower dough - a day bread loaf (discard the skin), oil pastel color, hand lotion and benzoic acid
2. a lino pad for rolling the flower petals.
shaping through hand for types of flowers - I made roses only and then air dry (inverted like dry flowers drying ,prevent from sticking together).
3. Can enhance flower through painting.
4. Then transparent varnish (for wood painting and carvings)dipping the flowers
Flower making and decorantion - wires, green stem (roll), leaves, whitish plastic flowers etc.

It can last for some years due to the benzoic acid and had hand lotion fragrance for some months.

Let me go and find my pics as I did them many years ago when I was handicraft crazy.

Thanks for the recipe. It works this time. Very Happy

Me and 2 other colleagues organised a CNY cupcake challenge for my office secretaries and this is one of the sample I made for them as reference. The one with the crown are for the winners. cheers
