Wafer paper flowers are popping up everywhere. Of course there are many types, some look amazing realistic. But this ribbon rose is great to whip up in a pinch! I made a last minute decision to make some for a cake last year, and in a few minutes I had the perfect toppers to finish off a cake for my mother-in-law (the cake at the bottom of the post)
You can make them any size you like, the large one in the picture above was made using a circle from a full sized A4 piece of wafer paper, while the smaller ones are from half a sheet. Yes you can colour it, but that’s a story for another day!
