    For the rose syrup, stir the sugar and 1 cup (250ml) water together in a small saucepan over low heat until the sugar has dissolved. Cool, then add the rosewater to taste and a few drops of food colouring until you have the desired colour. When ready to serve, unwrap the top of the terrine and turn out onto a serving platter. Decorate the top with the Persian fairy floss, then slice and serve with the rose syrup to drizzle over.
