Into this...?First, take a gumdrop and give it a good squeeze. You want to start with a slightly flat gumdrop.
Cover your work surface with plenty of sugar. Roll the gumdrop in sugar. Try not to think about that scene on "Who Framed Roger Rabbit". Ya know, where the bad guy he gets squished really thin by a steam roller and then comes back to life because he's really a cartoon. Okay. You just thought about it didn't you?
Holy smokes! He's a cartoon! Wait. I mean a gumdrop. Okay. It should be about as long as the length of your finger.
Cut it in halfRoll in a tight curl.
to make sure the toon is dead to ease the petal process.
Roll the second half of the gumdrop around the center. Pinch the base tightly and continue with more petals if desired. One drop usually makes on bud.
Place on top of your favorite cupcake or cake. This one is a lemon pound cupcake with berry fondant and pearls.
There you go! Make some gumdrop roses!
