    Such beautiful presentation

    I've seen carrots cut to become carnations, radishes into roses, beets into begonias, tiny tomatoes too intricate to describe and they make it look so easy!! Personal attempts in the privacy of my own kitchen lead me to ask if anyone knows a good web-site that shows how to produce such lovely creations. (Preferably slowly, big screen, and at a good volume.)

    Years ago I gave a friend a much simpler set. I love that carrot butterfly. Youtube has a a large selection of videos. I think that is the way to go with this for clarity. Very detailed work. Another reason to play with my food!

    Thank you, ladies, and I dinkum appreciate your help. In going through the different videos I found how to carve the most beautiful roses out of lemon peel, make carnations from tomato skin, or to create boutique trees from raw leeks. Only trouble being that I reckon nothing should go on a plate unless you can eat it. Nevertheless I found cucumber spirals (a keeper for sure) along with strawberry fans, and the bestest ever apple-swan. Then came the sugar-frosted flowers and I've a girlfriend with the loveliest patio garden. Food should be fun!!!
