Instead of giving a bouquet of roses, why not give one of edible apple roses instead?
- 2 red apples
- 1 lemon
- 1 sheet puff pastry
- 1/4 cup caster (super-fine) sugar
- Melted butter
- Powdered sugar, to decorate
- Using a mandolin, slice apples so that they are quite thin. Cut them into half circles, and place them on a plate with a squeeze of lemon over the top.
- Microwave for 45-60 seconds, until they are soft and pliable. Cover with a tea towel and set to one side.
