hey all. today after work, my pastry chef showed me how to make roses out of modeling choclate. we kneaded the chocolate until it was pliable and then we rolled it into a log and cut a fat piece for a base. then we cut pieces of the log and rolled them up to form small balls. we took a piece of plastic wrap and put it on the counter and took a few of the balls and folded plastic wrap over the balls and pushed them down to form a a bud. then we attached them to the base. i was wondering if there are diffrent ways to make these roses. i dont mind this way but it seems to take a little longer this way. i recall seeing a pastry chef make the roses but pusing a small ball of chocolate in there palm and it form a bud but i cant really recall if that was what she was doing. can anyone help????
