    Hi chef loved the tutorial! Could you please have a simple template of the transparent spoon you used?

  2. Yara says:

    Thank you so much, love the tutorial.

  3. goldie says:

    Thank you so much for this tutorial.
    I have 2 questions.
    1. for how long can the roses be kept and used (stock reserve)?
    2. Can you please explain what is the difference between Fondant and Gum past and what are the different uses?

    1. Serdar Yener says:

      Hi, Goldie Thanks for your compliments. 1. You can keep them in a box ( no need airtight) for few months . They are not going to be disappeared after that =). They may just loose the colour and so on. 2. If you read the ingredients, they both the same. The only difference is gum paste has more tylose or whatever the gum they use. That makes it fondant has better stretch for coating, gum paste has the ability to hold the shapes for modelling. Also, gum paste dries faster. You can add your own Tylose into fondant to achieve that to some degree.

  7. amy rahaf says:

    Beautiful really nice chef plz I can use gum paste or just fondant?
    Sorry for my simple question but what I mean that gum past most of time the use it for rose are the same like fondant.
    I am just start learn about it.

    1. Serdar Yener says:

      Gum past and fondant is not same paste but it will also work of course

  8. Elisabetta Morandi says:

    Hi Alicia and Serdar, I have made the roses with Marshmallows Fondant. It worked beautifully – I did not knead in much extra sugar but I added 1 Tsp of CMC per 2-300 g of Fondant.
    I hope this helps, cheers.
    PS: Thank you Serdar, it is a wonderful way of making beautiful roses -:)

  9. Alicia Haniff says:

    Hi chef, is it possible to use marshmallow fondant?

    1. Serdar Yener says:

      I never tried that but I think if you knead enough icing sugar in side will work. Let me know please

    2. Serdar Yener says:

      I think so. If it is too soft add some icing sugar till the fondant firm enough.

  10. KYRKI says:

    Great tutorial as always chef!!!
    Can you tell me please how much icing sugar you put into regular fondant to make it harder?
    Thank you.

    1. Serdar Yener says:

      start from 10 percent . you can go up to 20 . depending on your fondant and your comfort

      1. KYRKI says:

        Thank you so much chef.
