What are you most proud of? This is truly the prettiest rose that I have ever done! I am so excited to make more!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Know something about making the rose to begin. If you want to learn this, one of the best ways is to search online for how-to videos. YouTube has some excellent tutorials from genuinely great teachers and pastry chefs too.

This is gorgeous. How long did it take you to make?

It takes one day for the petals on stems to dry,and I like to give the rose center 24 hours before adding wrapped petals. Then I begin painting a deep red food color on the inner petals as I place them. I paint the same red on the wired petals just before adding them, giving them a little time to dry. Altogether, it takes a couple of days.
