I saw a pic of a bouquet of bacon roses & thought it was a great idea for my spouse for Valentine's Day. But I'm lazy & HATE fiddling with bacon. So I came up with a fairly easy way to make some.
They might not look quite as "authentic" as the more fiddly version, but:
A) I would NEVER get around to making it that way.
B) My spouse will still appreciate the effort & creativity.
C) It's still BACON. What's not to like??
Step 1: Things you will need
pre-cooked bacon (This is the key to it being easier to make.)
cupcake liners (Foil liners will make clean-up a breeze!)
skewers (Toothpicks might be better IF you have a mini-cupcake/muffin pan because it will make smaller holes in the bacon.)
oven & oven mitt
vase to hold to the bouquet
white chocolate chips
red food coloring
NEW paint brush
