I use the same method that I use for making white chocolate roses. I dont do them the same way as the gumpaste, as the gumpaste you make a center on a wire and let it dry before you put the petals on. With fondant, i first mix in some gumtrag, let it sit in an airtight container or in a ziplock bag for about an hour, and then i start to work with it. By this stage it would be already coloured. I make the center, then add two petals, then three around these, then five. Sometimes i add another 7 around the five, and i allow the rose to dry.
These instructions for chocolate roses are very similar and should help.
The following cake was made using fondant roses. Much quicker than gumpaste but not as fine.
