Once the three flowers of different sizes have been combined, arrange them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake them at 180 ° C for 12 minutes , just long enough for them to become crunchy. As for the fried version, also in this case the addition of the filling is at your discretion.


Like all fried desserts, carnival roses should also be eaten at the moment because with humidity they tend to lose their crunchiness.
