Anyway no celebration in our home is complete without BB Cakes

Dark Chocolate and Salted Caramel is the BOMB!!! you’re missing out tons if you have never tried this one from Butter Boutique…They serve love along with their cakes and coffee. You’re spoilt for choices because they have a large variety of cakes, cinnamon rolls, brownies, cookies etc etc

Our newest addiction is the White Chocolate Cookie : OH EMM GEEE

Anyway if you know me,I love to re purpose things and absolutely hate food waste.This was one of my most satisfying accomplishments…
Oven Dried Rose Petals !!!! Because why not !!! So easy and amazing results gave me so much happiness….

Let’s Get Started

Start by removing each petal of the rose and patting them dry using a paper towel

Then place each petal away from each other on a lined baking tray.Do not over crowd the tray, the petals will end up steaming instead of crisping up. Maintain distance….

Bake in a preheated oven at 150 for less than 10 minutes or until its has shrivelled up into the perfect texture.Crisp but not burnt

Do not leave it unattended for too long while they’re in the oven as it can burn very easily

Takes less than 10 minutes most times and it actually depends on your oven so keep an eye just to make sure you get best results

The petals are now edible and ready to be used for any kind of food or drink

This stores really well if refrigerated but stays fresh in air tight container if stored properly too

Ideal to be used over cakes and desserts or even to flavour sweet drinks

Now you know what you can do next time you receive a bunch of beautiful roses…You can still make use of them and not let them go to the bin…

Would love to see your remakes on this.Be sure to tag me on social media or send me a screen shot of your post if your account is private so I can re share them on my stories

Looking forward to great beginnings and praying for everyone’s safety around the globe ?

Stay Safe and Be Responsible
Much Love ? Nuzrath
