You’re probably thinking that it takes a seasoned baker to create edible roses that look this beautiful, but anyone can do it. You’ll just need a steady hand and a #1M star piping tip. Cut a hole in the tip of the pastry bag or in a corner of a food-safe plastic bag, add the meringue to the bag, and start creating your flowers. Pop them in the oven and after they’ve cooled, dip the bottoms of the roses in melted chocolate for an extra sweet treat. They’ll look beautiful displayed on your kitchen counter, but chances are, they aren’t going to last very long. Next, check out these brilliant kitchen shortcuts to save you time in the kitchen.
