The actual cake may have fresh roses or butter cream, I just wanted to give the fondant rose a try. I had a good start when my little water or gumpaste "glue" cup spilled on the rolled out fondant (which ruins it) so I have half a rose.
I found this milk glass plate at the antique mall this week for $6. I have since had it sitting on the table placing my cereal bowl or coffee cup on it just because it's so pretty makes me smile. :)
