Recipes & Ingredients
White Chocolate (Compound) Wikipedia

For gluing

Compound chocolate is a product made from a combination of cocoa, vegetable fat, and sweeteners. It is used as a lower-cost alternative to true chocolate, as it uses less-expensive hard vegetable fats such as coconut oil or palm kernel oil in place of the more expensive cocoa butter. It may also be known as 'compound coating' or 'chocolatey coating' when used as a coating for candy.
Pastillage or Gum paste

For outer petals

Rolled Fondant

For center rose

A commonly used sugar paste for coating cakes. Also known as RTR (ready to roll) fondant.
