In the video I show you how to make a strawberry into a flower. Here are the written steps for it…

  1. Place strawberry on skewer
  2. Cut 4 small slits toward the bottom of the strawberry, working your way around the berry, be careful not to cut all the way through, cut only about 7/8 down
  3. Then make another row of slits, alternating them with the row below
  4. Continue up the strawberry until you reach the top, then make a slit across the tip of the strawberry
  5. Gently use your knife to pull the petals out to form the flower
