How to Make Fondant (Ruffle) Rosettes on a Cake
MaterialsCake tier covered in fondant
Pizza cutter for your strips or Fondant Rosette Cutter Available Here
Marshmallow fondant Recipe Here. To buy our ready made fondant click here. (fresh MMF can be too soft) OR a 50/50 fondant/gumpaste mixture (Quantiy - a lot - sorry for the vagueness here but it really depends on your tier size and how you space your strips)
Pasta Roller OR Fondant Roller
For a cliffnote version of how to do this check out our you tube video:
run it through the pasta roller to get a nice even thickness.
2. Cut the strip - Using your cutter or your fondant rolling cutter, cut out 'rainbow' shaped strip. I like to cut one and use it right after cutting (versus cutting a whole bunch but you will find what you are comfortable with). Don't worry if your edges aren't nice and neat/clean because you won't notice them at all when positioned on the cake.
3. Lightly paint the area of the cake you will apply your strip to with water (water is a perfect sticking agent for MMF but you can use sugar glue as well).
5. Keep Going - Continue to cut strip after strip and wrap continuously around and around and create the style/effect you are going for. Further create a ruffle look with your fingers or other fondant tool.
6. Admire your work after the first few hours... because you may likely be doing this for even longer;-)! You will find that this is not a difficult technique just extremely time consuming.
Thanks for reading and happy cake making!!
