Very happy to say that I managed to get the fondant completely smooth and without any ruffles for this one! Finally! The birthday girl wanted something quite classic and spiritual so I didn't want to bombard it with too much colour or distracting decoration. I love making roses like this with coloured fondant, although I'm just starting to experiment with more delicate structures and flower modelling paste so I wish I could have added a bit more variation. Will just have to make her another cake next year!
