... Rosebud ...
At the moment, these look like a tray of strange hors d'oeuvres. These are actually fondant rose buds, patiently awaiting their transformation to be part of my wedding cake entry for the competition.
I first learned how to make a fondant rose from my Wilton Course 3 Class 2. Apparently I made the buds too small. Stupid instruction booklet didn't have a lifesize picture of how they should be.
I have high hopes my new roses will be beautiful. I just have to make a bazillion of them. There will be more photos to come.
