My mother used to make miniature dough roses when I was a child, using flour and Elmer's glue if I recall . She was an artist at heart. I decided to try my hand at making a bacon rose "for the bacon contest" using my mom's dough rose method. They turned out better than I had expected. These roses could be a unique thing to do this time of year with Easter, Mother's day, and summer just around the corner. I am not an artist, although I am creative. I rely on methods like these when I can't draw or shape things like roses. So if you are like I am, this instructable might interest you. Follow through and I will show you how to make a beautiful bacon rose potato to use as a garnish or side dish.

Place the leaves on the cookie sheet and bake for about 10-15 minutes, watching closely as not to burn.
