There are so many ways to bring Beauty and the Beast to life for an enchanted birthday party or celebration. With this recipe, learn how to carve strawberries into enchanted roses. They’ll make for a perfect detail around a healthy fruit platter, party cupcakes, or a birthday cake.
Enchanted Rose Strawberries
- Fresh strawberries (Berries with a pointed shape work best for roses.)
- Paring knife
- Cutting board
Practice makes perfect!
Begin by placing your strawberry on a fork to hold it steady.
Using a paring knife, slice the strawberry downwards just slightly at the middle of the berry. Use the edge of the knife to fan outwards. Press and fan a couple times until the berry curves outwards on its own, creating the first petal.
Continue this process 3-4 more times around the base of the strawberry.
Cut a second row of petals, placing the new petals between the ones from the row below.
Continue creating rows of petals.
When you reach the tip of the strawberry, create one slice on the end and separate each side, creating the final petals.
Place your strawberry roses on a fruit platter, cupcakes, or a birthday cake for a perfect detail.
