How to make a Concha Bouquet
- fresh conchas – any flavor
- 12″ wood skewers
- colored tissue paper to compliment the colors of the conchas
- matching ribbon
- Visit your local panaderia and pick up any color of conchas you want, or you can even get other pan dulce.
- Carefully insert the skewer into the concha, try not to touch the concha topping, some might fall off.
- When all your conchas are in a skewer, place them on top of the tissue paper and arrange them whoever you prefer. Make sure they are on a corner of the tissue paper.
- Tie the skewers together after rearranging them.
- Fold the tissue paper over the the conchas. Try to only cover the skewers, grab your ribbon and tie it and make a bow. Also, make sure you wrap the conchas in plastic wrap so they don’t get hard.
- Skewers, tissue paper, and ribbon can be found at any local grocery story, or Amazon to make things a little bit easier
- When you have everything, make sure you are working on a flat surface.
