KB's wanted to make bacon roses with me ever since I came across the instructable last year. For Valentine's day, I decided to oblige her, and to complete the Valentine's day themed cooking and bacon challenges. There really isn't much need for a long and detailed explanation of what was done, since there's already an excellent guide out there, so I'll let the pictures do the talking.
Who needs a drill and real pans? Disposable works well. So does a phillips-head screwdriver.
13 strips of bacon to a pack... 12 cups. Challenge accepted.
Baking complete. A little cooling, and then they're ready to stem.
KB is in her tweenie years, which means she is physically incapable of expressing excitement. Ah well.
Overall, a fun project, and one I'll likely do again. I mean, it's BACON, and it isn't overcooked and crunchy and gross. Soft, perfect, pretty bacon is the way to go.
Total prep/cook time: 1 hour, including all the time it took to prep the silk flower stems.
Happiness rating: 12/10. Om nom nom.
