Theresugar pasteit is used to completely line cakes, biscuits and sweets. It is also used to create all sorts of decorations, from fictional characters to miniatures of fruit, houses, mountains or roses! Theroses with sugar pastethey are a great classic of confectionery decorations.
Sugar paste has not only an aesthetic role! While it has the advantage of making the cake more aesthetically pleasing, in practice the sponge cake covered with sugar paste will remain soft and moist for longer.
In short, the sugar paste acts as a "food film" that protects the sweets from dehydration and preserves the natural softness of the sponge cake it covers.

It becomes inconvenient to buy the sugar paste already prepared to line an entire cake! If you intend to line and decorate the cake in addition, you should make the sugar paste at home.

Once you get the rose,rolling upthe tile of the petals on itself, you will have to enlarge the rose until you get the effect you want. From the half-closed bud like the one obtained in the photo, to a rose with more open petals. The open petals, in my opinion, are more decorative, in this case you will have to work every single petal with your fingertips in order to create a light "sway"Which brings the two ends of the petal towards the outside of the rose. Not only the classic rose, with special tiles it is possible to make roses with curled petals.
