A number of people have asked me exactly how I make the ribbon roses on my bouquet cake so here’s a quick tutorial. The Equipment I use a small cutting board, a rolling pin and a scalpel. How to make the rose1. Roll a small piece of fondant into a sausage shape. 2. Roll the sausage flat with your rolling pin but don’t flatten it too much.
