Ingredients & Tools:
  • Large fresh strawberries
  • Lollipop sticks or plastic rose stems
  • Small sharp paring knife
1.Wash and completely dry your strawberries. Insert the lollipop stick or rose stem in the bottom of each strawberry. (If you do it after they’re cut it squishes the petals).

2.Starting at the bottom, cut “petals” slightly angled towards the center of the strawberry but don’t cut all the way through. You want to cut about 1/4″ down on the first row on the bottom. (I was able to get about 5-6 “petals” on the bottom row).

3.Using the knife, gently bend each cut piece out so it can slightly curl out creating a petal shape.

4.With the remaining rows, it works best to cut as close to the skin/red as possible as the piece will curl out better. Start the next row of petals going in between the petals you have already cut.

5.Continue all of the way to the top. Serve immediately.
