In my first post I mentioned that glass rose can be made in less time than you would think.
It is one of those things that can be done with a bit of practice, patience and an eye for detail.
It can be used as an accent, a decorative feature, as a decoration for your own room, or just for a fun gift.
I will share the process of making one in the next post.
Here’s what you need to do first.
Glass rose can also be made using the same techniques as for a cake.
If you want to learn more about making a cake, check out the Cake Making eBook.
Glass roses are also made with a mixture of sugar, baking powder, and baking soda, as well as some water and water-based extracts of essential oils.
They can be easily made in advance or baked at the beginning of the season.
If using a food processor, it will be easier to blend the ingredients than a mortar and pestle.
As I said, this is one easy way to make glass rose.
To start, add 1 cup of water to a saucepan over low heat.
Bring to a simmer.
Then add 2 tablespoons of flour to the pan and whisk to dissolve the flour.
Add the sugar, and cook for about 15 minutes, until the sugar has dissolved and a light caramel-like colour is achieved.
This will give you a thin batter that will take about an hour to cook.
If this looks like a cake batter, it is.
Remove from the heat and add the water mixture to the saucepan.
Add enough flour to form a thick dough.
Cook until it becomes elastic, but not quite a crumbly dough.
Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface.
Roll the dough out to about 1cm thick.
Place the dough onto a baking sheet or baking mat, and press down lightly to seal the dough.
The dough will not rise in the pan.
Repeat the process with the remaining flour, until you have a dough you like.
Cover with plastic wrap and leave for 10 minutes.
Then, in a small bowl, combine the baking soda and water.
Spread the dough over a baking mat.
Use a knife or a pastry brush to spread the dough around the baking sheet.
Bake the rose in the oven for about 20 minutes.
Allow the rose to cool before you cut it.
To make a cake for the glass rose, put 1 cup cake flour in a bowl and beat until smooth.
If it doesn’t look smooth, add more flour.
Cut into 2 inch squares and place the rose slices on a baking tray.
Cover the tray with plastic or foil, and leave in the fridge for 1 hour.
Remove the rose from the tray and place on a cutting board to make your cake.
You can also use a food mill to make the rose.
Place a small amount of the batter into the bowl of the food mill, and add a little water until it forms a smooth batter.
Turn the mill on high speed and start rolling out the cake, moving the dough every few minutes to prevent sticking.
Place 2-3 rounds of rose on top of the cake and carefully remove them from the bowl with the help of a spatula.
Bake at 400 degrees Celsius for 30-45 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean.
Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Store the rose roses in a glass container for up to 1 month.
