Chocolate Roses

My husband likes "white chocolate," so for our second Anniversary, I made him a white chocolate rose bouquet.  He liked flowers that looked pretty, as well as smelled and tasted good!  The stems are pretzels.  He stopped to pick up some groceries and I asked him to purchase a bag of white baking chips.  He had no idea he was purchasing his anniversary present!  Isn't it a pity that a husband not only has pick up his anniversary present, but pay for it too! :)  He didn't seem to mind.

For my friend/sister-in-law's birthday, I made her a chocolate rose bouquet.

Bacon Roses

Even the men folk can appreciate a bouquet, if it is bacon roses.  Last year for our "betrothal anniversary" I made my husband a rose bacon bouquet.  It works for mother's day as well if you happen to have a mother or mother-in-law who loves bacon.

 This is not an original idea.  I had seen other people doing bacon roses and wanted to do some for my husband.  Like all things though, we can add our own personal touch.  The bouquets I had seen either did not have any greenery, or they used fake leaves.  I did not want bacon roses on plastic leaves.  As much as possible, I like all my "food art" to be edible.  After looking at some salad greens, I decided fresh parsley looked best for a bouquet.  Roses are usually accompanied by baby's breath flowers.  I thought for a good while before coming up with the idea to use cauliflower for the baby's breath.
