Carrot Flower

Here is another flower, this time made out of carrots. My kids had loads of fun eating these carrot strips off of the flowers competing with each other!

I thought it was yet another great idea to make them gobble up carrots. What say?

I felt it was very easy to make and so my basic cutting and peeling skills were more than enough to get the desired result!!

So a carrot flower it is for Day 5 Week 4 of BM #27.

Ingredients - 

Carrots, as many as needed (1 carrot makes 1 flower)
Toothpick one for each flower

Method Of Preparation -

Choose a fresh, healthy and plump carrot. Wash the carrot and chop off both the ends. 

Peel the carrot length wise. We would need about 8-9 strips for 1 flower.


Carrot Flower process

Insert a small carrot chunk into a toothpick. This would be the anchor for the flower. 

Select 4 long carrot strips and 4 shorter ones.

Make a bow with the longer strip and pin it to the toothpick as shown in the picture. Pin 3 more long ones so that each of them is at right angles to the next one. 

Make a bow with the shorter strip and pin it to the toothpick so that it lies between 2 longer bows. Continue for the remaining 3 short strips.

Now it becomes an 8 petal flower. To close the open end of the toothpick at the top, fold a small carrot strip and pin it.

Place the flower on a bigger chunk of carrot or any other sturdy base and it would definitely make a center piece on a buffet table.
