Red means love, white means purity. There is no purer love than bacon love.

I think we all win when someone holds a bacon contest.

I probably need a break from wedding planning when pork products start to sound like a viable theme...

On the other hand, a bacon bouquet at a wedding brunch would be pretty epic. Taters/Bacon: The Espousening! What a delicious union that would be.

I think bacon is close to jumping the shark.

"A rose by any other name would smell as sweet." is usually attributed to Shakespeare. But that wonderful odor is probably due to Bacon.

All you need it a Pabst Blue Ribbon dip to accompany it and you're all set.

if there are any heavens my father will (all by himself) have 
one. It will not be a pastry heaven nor 
a fragile heaven of chilis-from-the-galley but 
it will be a heaven of bacon roses

my father will be (deep like a rose 
fried like a rose) 

standing near the

(swaying over it 
hungry) 
with eyes which are really vittles and see 

nothing with the face of a gullet really which 
is a nom'r and not a face with 
hands

I am not sure what to think. Bacon roses? Maybe it is time for me to leave this planet, because this strikes me as so much "first world problems" , it is beyond believe. But then, there are some people on my lawn I must attend to.

While this may be a quite harmless example, I don't like this trend of bacon extravaganza. It's disgusting.

People already make Tomato Roses; maybe someone could make a BLT bouquet.

Fabulous! A rare online look at such a savory treat. I don't know why bacon continues to be so ignored on the internet. It's a tragedy really.

I like bacon quite a bit, but the idea that bacon everything is either funny or delicious is getting a bit dull. Plus, how many people are going to want to destroy a perfectly good muffin tin just for a novelty item that's slightly amusing and tastes exactly like rolled-up pieces of bacon?

Now I want to make a meatloaf cake, iced with mashed potatoes, decorated with bacon roses.

It's the kind of thing I can imagine pulling out the "serving dinner in nothing but an apron and a smile" trick for--around here, with mine, blazing hot instant success. Wait until he sees the bacon rose petals I'll scatter all over our bed.

Tastes better than condom roses.

There is BrauĂ°terta, an Icelandic "sandwich cake" made with bread and tuna, and often decorated like a sweet cake. You could modify the recipe for a more "bacon-friendly" presentation.

Nothing says "I love you" like shaping the carcass of a pig into a meaty bouquet of flowers.

I thought it'd be delicious - actual reaction was - yuck, zombie roses :-/

Haters, all of you. Lighten up a moment and admit that if this appeared at brunch with your pancakes, you would be delighted.

Haters, all of you.

All of us? I am providing constructive feedback. At least I like to think so. By the way, and slightly off topic, BrauĂ°terta is pretty good, even if it sounds odd to North American palettes....

Wow, I thought this thread would be filled with bacon love. When my husband showed me the picture, I immediately said: "Now I know what you can get me for my birthday!"

@Specklet - Count me in for bacon love. I was looking for just this thing. (Of course my wife might have a different idea . . .)

To quote Homer Simpson: mmmmmm. Bacon!

Yeah, I don't see this as a "problem" at all. It's one person making some silly bacon roses for a silly contest involving bacon. It's not the be taken very, VERY seriously, though the current (ongoing) bacon obsession is a little, well, silly. It makes people do dumb things like, say, try a bacon flavored gumball, which I don't suggest you do. Holy moly that was vile. Or so I've heard.

"Haters, many of you," just didn't sound as snappy.

Bears, beets, Battlestar Galactica, bacon.
