Hi people!

Well people, we have 6 days of April left and 20 recipes to go. So let’s put on our baking hats and hurry our butts. I honestly thought I was going to be done this by the middle of April. I was all cocky about it actually. I was thinking I could double up and do two cookbooks this month. Here my butt sits at 8 pm and I still have 20 to go. I could keep stalling but let’s get to it people!

Today we are making some super cute little gum drop roses. Technically they are The Beast’s Enchanted Gumdrop Roses. They look way harder than they actually are. The trick is the¬†gumdrops needs to be soft. I tried to do it with slightly older gumdrops and it was like rolling out wood. It could happen but would take a long time.


  • 4 red or pink jumbo gumdrops

  • 4 green jumbo gumdrops

  • Sugar

How you make them:

  1. This step is really your choice. You can dye some sticks green for the stems. I skipped this because I thought it wasn’t necessary.

  2. Place a sheet of wax paper on the table. Sprinkle sugar over the paper.

  3. Place a gumdrop on top of the sugar, and cover with another piece of wax paper.

  4. Roll out the gumdrop. This will take a little muscle. You are making a long thin strip.

  5. Cut the rolled out gumdrop in half the long way. Do this for all the rolled out gumdrops.

  6. Roll a gumdrop like you would roll up a carpet. Wrap another gumdrop around. Repeat until you have reached the size of rose you want.

  7. Wrap two green gumdrops around the rose. That makes the leaves.

Simple and great for any Beauty and the Beast party or on top of a cake. Let’s move on people… we have 19 more recipes to go!

Happy baking friends!
