What are you most proud of? I like the way the roses came out considering this is my "real' first time making them.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time. Work in production mode, you will get so much more productive. Have fun!

Looking good!! One question, how did you join them all together, did you insert them into a Styrofoam block or something similar on top or insert each one into the cake?

Hello! I used a styrofoam half sphere and inserted each one into the cake. Now the trick is to make lots and lots of small buds because that will help you cover the space between the large roses. Hope it helps!
