These sweet and easy apple roses are such an eye-catcher at any kind of party 🍰🍰.
Just make sure the apple slices are soft and bendable before rolling the roses. Really, make sure they are. I messed up a few roses thinking I could make them without softening them, doesn’t work..#stubbornness.
Also, for more color use different types of apples and/or jam. Enjoy the sweetness 🌹!
