Simple Rose Cake

I made this cake over the weekend... It was a vanilla cake, filled with strawberry buttercream and fresh strawberries.  It's a buttercream finish with gumpaste roses and a fondant "ribbon" around the middle.  I'm trying to find a style of roses that I'm really happy with, so these ones were just for practice :)

Once I find a style/method of rose making that I'm happy with, I might make a tutorial.  But for now, if you want to try making gumpaste roses, check out Edna's tutorial on YouTube, she's a great teacher and you only need circle cutters, which most cake decorators will already have!

Happy Caking :)
