Mini Rose Bouquet cake on a stick-
This is a give a mini bouquet of flowers to your valentine this one is a good valentine idea to give to that person that you love the most and it is also a great substitute for the real flowers that are always sold each year on February for valentines day but the only difference is that the roses will be made out of bread ready to decorate and eat. You can also use the sticks as rose stems for a more sophisticated and romantic feel. There are only two steps that you have to follow to make this in the first step- you have to bake your own favorite cake or brownie it can be either one of those two you choose into a rose mini cake pan then take away from the pan and let it cool off for a few moments. Then the second step- you have to do is use some red red and Christmas mix of red of cake icing so basically you take the icing to trace the cake tops and follow the shape of the petals.
Then you add in some sugar to put in the green cake icing insert a cookie stick into the melted candy and let the stick go thru the back of the rose cake.
