Pate d'amandes roses

I've been meaning to try making some chocolate roses, but just haven't had time to get round to it, and so last night I found some "pate d'amandes" in my larder so had a go at marzipan ones instead...

I'm really happy with how they turned out. I kneaded the marzipan to make a little cone-shaped base, then used a little modelling tool my mother-in-law gave me for Christmas, and worked the marzipan in between two sheets of cling film to make the petals.

I also had a go at making teeny tiny rosebuds as well and they look really sweet!

Here is my first rose:
