    These are really pretty so how do you store them, and what is the shelf life after you make the flowers.

    • Angie says:

      You can just store them in a tupperware. In my experience they lasted for at least a couple of weeks, but could possibly last longer in an airtight container.

    Just wondered if it matters how ripe the pineapple is? I would be making them in the oven and wondered if you could place them on the cupcake tin upside down so that when they dry out they would begin to drape down over the cup and form the flower. Thanks for the tutorial!

    • Angie says:

      I suppose a very ripe/juicy pineapple will need extra time to dry. Re: draping over cupcake tin, it might be unnecessary. The slices need to be flipped over at least once for even drying, especially if you use conventional oven. When they’re ready to be formed, they need to still be pliable and not hardened. Having said that, these are guidelines, certainly not set in stone. Give your plan a try and see what will happen. I’d be interested to know if it works out. Will save me extra steps next time. Thanks for checking out the tutorial! ??

    Can I use canned pineapple?

    • Angie says:

      I haven’t tried it and I wouldn’t recommend it. Canned pineapple is a lot “wetter” and most likely soaked in some kind of syrup, which may burn in the drying process. Plus the core would have been removed, so your flowers wouldn’t have any centers.

Talk to me, people!
