Hey there! Feeling Springy? You already know how much I luv luv luv flowers. Well, I found a really cute food flower idea on Pinterest that I thought I might share with you because…
They’re Tasty, Healthy, and Fun To Make!
How can you go wrong with that?
And they’re really so simple. To be honest at first I wasn’t sure about the prep. I’m not the world’s craftiest. And if you’re like me I assure you they are easy peasy and you can of course do all different types of fruit this way – Cantaloupe, Watermelon, Honeydew, Apples, Pears, Mangos…what have you!
I call them Easy Kiwi Berry Fruit Flowers. Aren’t they cute???
I used these with great success at my Mom’s recent Surprise 70th Birthday Bash. They definitely created a “WOW” factor on the table with the other food and the guests and family just gobbled them up.
And as you might surmise, they’re not just for parties!! My kids lllllllooooovvvvveeeee them too. Check this out.
First you wash, dry, and peel the kiwi and berries. Next you slice the kiwi (or your fruit of choice) and shape them with any cookie cutter shape you like. (My mother-in-law gave me a bunch of vintage shape cutters ages ago and they were perfect for this – thanks Mom!)
Be sure to save fruit pieces you don’t use for these pretty babies. Throw them in your salad that night, or add to any fruit salad ideas you have or you can do like me and…
Now once your berries are dry, grab a toothpick or skewer of your choice, stack the fruit, and hold together with said pick. I liked the look of a couple different types of berries for plate presentation and the white platter really set them off.
There you have it. Pretty little edible spring flowers.
Wonder what other shapes one could make? Hmmm. Makes a great kid/kitchen edible craft idea too!
Happy eating! Hope you enjoy!
