These gorgeous dried and sugared Pineapple Flowers may look intimidating but if juts take some time to get everything together it will be well worth it!
I made these specifically for a Pina Colada Cake pictured above. This was my first time and they came out great so I know you can do this. I was so pleased. Whatever I didn’t put on the cake was eaten right away but you can make these ahead of time and keep them in an airtight container for up to a week. Maybe more depending on the climate.
They naturally make that cute center blossom and floral shape when they dry out.
Pineapples can do more than just be added to recipes fresh in their fresh state. Drying them in the oven gives them a sweet chewy texture and amped up pineapple taste.
These impressive little sweets are so easy to make and can be eaten as is or use to decorate cakes, breads, or use on a fruit platter.
How cute would these be in miniature by using fresh baby pineapples!
I really love how they came out to decorate my Pina Colada Cake.
