Homemade MMF Fondant 2 Tier Rose Cake






This was a cake I made for my 2nd Marriage Anniversary as a Gift for my Husband .It was the first time I tried making Marshmallow Fondant.I made almost 40 Fondant roses (small, medium & large) in advance & enjoyed every moment of it. I also tried using the ribbon technique which I happened to see in a Cake decorating book at a bookstore (at Borders) . I loved the way the cake finally turned out.I also added a Fondant lace frill to the edges which made it look elegant.The Roses are made of Rolled fondant with Gumtex added to it.

hehe......Although it involved a tedious task of making these 40 roses I enjoyed every moment of it. Especially after seeing the end result.

Your cake looks really good! I made MMF for my ribbon/bow cake and was worried the MMF wouldn't be stiff enough for roses. Did you have to add the gumtext to the MMF?

Thanks a lot Steph for dropping by.Sorry I forgot 2 mention, I used the MMF only to cover the cake.The roses are made with Wilton's Rolled Fondant,I added some gumtex powder to it. I'll surely update that in the description.
