When Valentine’s Day approaches, we’re all looking for the perfect romantic gesture to show our deepest affection. Sometimes a delicious box of treats is the right touch, other times it’s a bouquet of blooming roses.  But this year, the perfect gesture is the clever marriage of the two…Cake Pop Roses. These sweet little bite size flowers are a great way to use your cake making talents to say “I love you” and nothing says that better than hand made sweets.

When making these pops, be sure to use a cake pop filling that holds it’s shape well, so that the pops will support the delicate layer of fondant on the exterior. Chill your cake pop bases well before adding your fondant layer, so that you have ample time to assemble each flower.  Also, roll your fondant very thinly, although it may be a bit delicate to handle, the finished cake pop will have a better ratio of cake to icing if the fondant isn’t overwhelming the filling.

On a surface covered lightly with powdered sugar, roll out a small portion of hot pink fondant as thinly as possible. Use the rose cutter to cut out a flower shape.

Next, place the fondant flower in your palm with the center resting at the opening of your fingers. Brush the middle of the flower with a very light coating of water and poke the cake pop tear drop through the center of the fondant.

Next, referring to the numbers on the rose cutter, lift and stretch petal #1 up and around the teardrop.

Repeat the process with petal #2, making sure it cups and intertwines with petal #1 to cover the tear drop cake pop. Brush with a little water in spots to adhere as necessary.

Repeat the process again with petal #3, #4 and #5. Make sure to place these petal evenly around the outside of the bud, using a little water to adhere in places as necessary. When the petals are finished, use your fingers to curl and flair the edge of the petals for effect.

Prop the rose up in a glass to dry and start again, working on only one rose at a time.

Using a dry paintbrush, heavily dab the inside and edges of the rosebud with tulip red luster dust. Gently turn the cake pop upside down and brush off excess onto a piece of wax paper or parchment paper to catch the excess. Recoat in layers as desired.
