Gelatine is put in 1/3 cup water to swell for approximately 5 minutes, then heated on a hot plate - the melt. In a bowl, mix sieved powdered sugar, starch, and optional tartaric acid. Reference is well, in which the pour slightly cooled gelatine and kneaded well. If dough is dry - a few drops of water if the sticky - more powdered sugar. When mixtures good hands smeared with a little butter and forming roll (easier for further preparation). It is better to turn twice transparent, household foil and put in a well-sealable box. So rest for about an hour and can now work - dry pretty quickly, but it is good if you make more sophisticated ornaments, be prepared a day or two before it to dry well. Fondant can be maintained in the way described above about 1 week in the refrigerator, while taking out his if hard can run for a few seconds in the microwave.

Very interesting, but how to make roses example?

Roses are cut with a cup rank is 5-6 rings and rolled like a rose!

This fund is suitable for you fully cover the cake / both professionally prepared cakes / or becomes just figures?
