Rose Tutorial Part 1
Ingredients and Tools
(What I use)
½ a pack of 750 gram Pack Bakels Pettinice Ivory or White
With added ½ a teaspoon of Tylose (leave wrapped in cling film overnight to mature)
A Large Snaplock Glad Bag (cut down the seams)
Some dessert and/or soup spoons (I use antique hallmarked ones as they are lovely and deep!)
Some food colour (Here I have used a Chefmaster Gel – Pink)
Some Crisco (or other white fat … I prefer Crisco)
Get your matured icing (½ a pack of 750 gram Pack Bakels Pettinice Ivory or White
With added ½ a teaspoon of Tylose (leave wrapped in cling film overnight to mature) Put a wee bit of Crisco on your hands and give the icing a good knead. Put a wee bit more Crisco on hands and then add a drop of colour onto a good size ball of icing. Stretch as shown in picture if you want a marbled effect or just knead in if you want a single colour.
Make a wee cone out of icing for the centre of the rose.
Rose Tutorial Part 2
Get your wee cone for the centre, Make a ball of icing. (See image) Place under (between) the glad snaplock bag as shown and push out into the shape of a petal.
Rose Tutorial Part 3
Put a little bit of sugar glue on the inside of the 1st petal and wrap around the cone making sure the petal is higher than the cone. Then make some more balls and push out a few more petals.
Rose Tutorial Part 4
Paint a light small amount of sugar glue on the back of the petals and wrap another three to four petals onto the cone, one at a time. Make some more balls, slightly larger this time. Push out a petal and place it on a spoon. And bend the petals at the end of the spoon into the shape of a petal. (See image).
Rose Tutorial Part 5
Makes some more (about 6 to 8) and put them on spoons, Try to Keep them in the order you made them. (Don’t leave too long as they will get too hard and break!) Put a wee bit of sugar glue on the Base and sides of the petals as shown in image. Then pick up the first one and gently attach it to your centre.
Rose Tutorial Part 6
Add another two petals, keeping them nicely spaced as shown. Gently manipulate your petal shape with the tips of your fingers.
Finally add you last outer petals and leave to dry.
Rose Tutorial Part 7
Once dry you can add petal dust if you require. (If you decide to go bigger larger outer petals will need support on drying!)
