  4. For the flower decoration: peel the pineapple and cut it with a sharp knife into very thin slices (a couple of millimeters). Dry the slices with kitchen paper and laid on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Bake in preheated oven at 100 °C for 1 hour - 1 hour and a half turning a couple of times while baking. Switch off the oven and place hot slices inside cups, or like I did, in the muffin tin. They will dry out completely and and will have the shape of a flower.
