Sugar Roses DVD
In this DVD I explain different ways to do Roses. I don't like to tell people what you need to buy for making flowers because everyone has a different way to do things and you have to choose what works for you best.
The first thing I teach is how to do a rose using separate petals. The way I teach it in the DVD is a little bit different than the tutorial I have here posted in You Tube. The good thing about separate petals is that you can achieve giant roses. In here I will show you my favorite cutters.
I posted my favorite tools used in the DVD. You don't need them all. I teach different ways to do the flower so you can choose what works best for you. Each photo has a link that will take you to the tool shown for those who want more information on the tool.
Make separate petals with this cutter.
Giant Plain Tear Drop Set
You can use this tear drop cutter for giant flowers.
Five Petal Cutter
Five petal cutters are my favorite cutters when I am in a hurry to finish
a cake or the bride is in a budget. I teach in the DVD, how to use this cutters and move fast. You will need
at least 2 cutters close in size to finish one rose
Easy Calix Cutter for a fast way to finish a rose.
PME Calix Cutter
Beautiful Calix cutter that can be used for roses. With some extra touches it can look very realistic.
This is my first veiner and favorite one. It makes the roses leaf veins very realistic.
Rose Leaf Plunger
I love this leaf plunger
because I move faster with the plunger. The veins of the plunger I don't use as much but they can make really fast leaves for simple designs that don't require wire.
I love tylose gumpaste for gumpaste flowers. I have the recipe and the tutorial on how to make this easy recipe. Plus I use the tylose to strengthen fondant and make gum glue.
This is one of those tools I can't live without. Once you use it you will see why I love it so much. Best buy ever. I won't teach a class without one!
My favorite ball tools are these ones. They are inexpensive compared to other ones plus they are light and easy to work with.
Rose Veiner Floramat
This mat that has veins for the five petal cutter. It includes, leaves, single petals and even thorns.
The needle tool is another of my favorite tools that I don't live without. I use it with almost all my gumpaste flowers.
Petal Dusts finish the flowers making them look completely realistic.
Floral Tape & Wire
Floral Tape is used to finish the flowers. I love paper covered wire. It holds the gumpaste in place better than other wires.
This friller tool I used in the DVD for those who want to play with veins. But if you want realistic veins, there are other veiners that are meant just for rose veins.
