These roses are the cutest things that can be put atop a red velvet cupcake. For fondant beginners or just for those who want a new varieties of decorations on their cupcake, this is great. It’s super easy, quick, and really fun to make.
I made these roses with marshmallow fondant, which in my opinion, is so much tastier than store bought fondant. Store bought fondant tastes artifical… and awfully gummy. I think the best store bought brand is Wilton, and you can basically access that at any Craft Supply store, or Walmart!
1. Let your fondant out to room temperature on a powdered sugar dusted surface before anything else! This softens the fondant and brings it to a workable consistency. The powdered sugar prevents the fondant from sticking to your work surface which is so annoying.
Let the rose dry out for about 2-3 hours before you put them atop your cupcakes. The powdered sugar will disapear from the roseas it dries. This rose is just so cute, and it’s just perfect for quickly decorating some cupcakes.
Happy baking, and good luck!
