Decorating wedding cupcakes with fondant roses

by Pat Foskett

My friend asks me to decorate 100 cupcakes for her wedding. She does not like fondant, but she says fondant roses are ok! But I know fondant does not go well with butter icing. So the bottom of dried fondant roses will get too soft if I decorate the cupcakes a few days before the wedding! What's your good suggestion please? Thanks very much!

Fresh roses or buttercream roses

If your friend is not so keen on fondant icing, my suggestion would be to use royal icing. I have not personally used fondant roses on buttericing and therefore, I am afraid I cannot comment on that. What about fresh roses or roses piped from buttercream itself? I think these are good options as well.
