My Mother's Birthday


This is fondant roses. There has been some pause given by several cake makers about useing homeade MMF for roses and other cake applications. Well I'm here to tell ya! MMF roses are great! The trick to getting it right is to make sure your MMF is not sticky. If you find that it is sticky work in some additional powdered sugar. There is an MMF recipe that uses corn syrup. I find that this one is more sticky and harder to work with for flowers.

When making roses with the 5 petal cutter I often let the layers dry between layers. This makes is much easier to get each layer right and more realistic. Just my opinion anyway. :)

Happy birthday Mommy!!
