In this puzzle, each rose was associated with a “ring” of words, where the last letter of each word was the first letter of the next word. The answers for each rose were:
- BOZO, ONION, NATURALLY, YOKE, EBB
- IDIOM, MAGMA, ACTUAL, LASSO, OVERLAP, PARENT, TIMPANI
- CORPSE, EVIL, LASAGNA, ATOMIC
- TOOTH, HEAVY, YOLO, OSU, UMLAUT

Steve spotted an animal moving three units west.
After filling in the blanks around each rose, you can read the initials of the resulting words in a circle (one word per rose):
- EBONY (Ebb, Bozo, Onion, Naturally, Yoke)
Apply the process one more time to re-order the final set of words. This gives you a new set of two words:
- HOLEY (Hero, Optimal, Lace, Ebony, Youth)
- CREAM (Career, Rose, Enigma, Acronym, Magic)
…which is the final delicious answer, HOLEY CREAM!
