How to make a Bacon Bouquet

Firstly, roll the bacon into rose bud shapes. I like the white fatty part to be at the top. You want to use thinner bacon - not thick cut for this.

Line a mini cupcake tray with mini cupcake wrappers. I poke holes in the wrappers to allow the fat to drain when cooking. Place one bacon rose in each wrapper.

Mix up a maple whisky glaze and brush it on to each bacon rose, saving half of the glaze for later. Pop the bacon in the oven.

Halfway through baking, bring the bacon roses back out of the oven, brush them with the extra glaze and then pop them back in the oven.

Place each rose on a wooden kebab skewer. I made 24 as my mini cupcake tray has 24 spots. 2 dozen roses? Yes, please!

Wrap the Bacon Bouquet in aluminium foil, parchment paper or greaseproof paper. You can also secure it with a bow or ribbon.
