How To Make An Old Fashioned English Rose

With Sue McMahon

Difficulty Easy

Broken Video?

Sue will show you step by step how to make these traditional old fashioned English roses. These beautiful roses are different to traditional roses in that their centres have groups of petals, making these a lovely addition to an arrangement on a wedding or celebration cake. Sue will show you how to build up the petals of the rose, and how to colour them with edible dust colouring to create a realistic gradient of colour. These roses look beautiful when arranged alongside sugar rose buds and sugar rose leaves. Check out Sue's video tutorials on how to make rose leaves and buds to bring it all together for a truly stunning celebration cake.
