Roses are red....how to make rolled fondant roses

Sometimes after I finish decorating a cake I have bits of fondant left over. Making rolled mini roses is the perfect way to keep it from going to waste. These are really easy to make and are a great way to save money, no more need to  buy pre-made decorations  When you're in a rush and need to spruce up a dessert, these mini roses will come in handy :)

Just a few simple items and you're on your way. You'll need:


~ Mini Rolled Fondant Roses~


Coloured fondant
Icing sugar for dusting
Rolling pin



Step 1: 
Take a small amount, approximately a pea size amount of coloured fondant and roll into a ball.  


Step 2:
Then roll the ball into a log shape.


Step 3:
Flatten the log shape fondant with rolling pin, Don't make it too flat. You can flatten with your fingers if you don't have a rolling pin, works just as well.


Step 4:
Start rolling up flatten fondant, all the way till the end. Press the ends in lightly and that's all. The more fondant you use the bigger the rose, depends on what size you prefer.


 


So simple and so pretty.....Ta-da!!


Doesn't matter what colour you make them, they're all great. With Valentine's day right around the corner, these mini roses would be a pretty addition to any cookies and cupcakes. Made them from scratch or just spruce up some store bought ones either way your loved ones will be so impressed. What a great way to show someone how much they mean to you .


 Store the mini fondant roses in  plastic baggies or an airtight container in a cool, dry place. They last for very long time. 


I've used these mini rolled fondant roses to decorate cookies.... 




cupcakes......and




Aren't they so cute?


cake pops!! 


As you can see I use the mini roses often :)


Having rolled mini fondant ready to use anytime I need them is a good thing. They are my 'go to' decoration and I think they add a perfect touch!! 



Happy rose making :)
