- Bacon
- Roses Stems
- Glass Vase & mables
- Mini Muffin Pan

1. Preparing the pan

Drill holes in the bottom of the muffin pan. This will allow the grease to drain when cooking the bacon. Place the muffin pan on top of the broiler pan.

2. Prepare the rose buds.

- Preheat the oven to 375degrees Fahrenheit

- Open the bacon and begin tightly rolling the roses, one piece at a time. Start with the widest end of the bacon, with the fat edge down. I like to use a combination of thick and thin bacon so I end up with a variety of rose shapes.

- Place all of the bacon in the muffin pans pushing down slightly to "seat" them. The bottoms will flair out a bit.

- Place in the oven and cook for 30-40 minutes. Check in on them occasionally. Sometimes you will have to lift the rose so the grease will drain out the pan.

3. Prepare the rose stems.

- While waiting for the buds to cook you can start working on the stems. I found the stems that work best can be purchased at Walmart in bunches of 7, for under a dollar each.

- Pull all of the roses off from the stems.

- Pull the green backing off from the rose and then separate it into individual parts.

- Discard the petals and center red piece. Reassemble the remaining green parts as shown.

- Put the green piece back on the stem, but force it down so that roughly 1" of the stem protrudes.

- Put the stems in your vase and fill with gravel or marbles to hold them in place.
