Instructions.

To begin preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F and cover with aluminum foil the bottom of a baking tray. You can also use a cupcake baking tray so that the bacon when cooking loses fat and accumulates in the bottom of the molds. In this way the roses are drier. Always at the end of baking you should dry the roses with a cloth paper towel to avoid dripping oil. Take a bacon slice and proceed to roll up it in such a way that it looks like a rose. Hold it with several toothpicks so that it keeps on the shape and at the same time allow it to remain standing.  Repeat the process for each bacon slice.

Now place all of them in the tray. Proceed to bake until well browned (20 to 30 minutes). Retire from the oven and allow to cool before removing toothpicks. Once completely cold, place them on a skewer to make them look like a rose with its stem. Decorate by placing bacon roses with artificial flowers. And surprise that special person.

Note: If you do not want to use a bouquet of artificial roses, you can use leaves of spinach or another vegetable. In our case we use sticks of about 5 inches skewers, floral tape and spinach leaves to achieve a more natural result.

Pass the bacon rose with the wooden stick, place two or three spinach leaves on both sides of the rose and attach it to the flower. Cover the whole stick with floral tape.
