Marigold Flowers - Fruit and Vegetable Carving

Carving flowers from fruit and vegetables is something I am really enjoying, There are so many types of flowers with different petals and shapes. Each as  beautiful as the other.

Here I have tried a flower with a uniform petal shape, this is achieved using a u shape petal cutter rather than freehand method that is used on carving roses and carnations.You can use any vegetable or fruit such as carrots, radish, melon, potato, butter nut squash or pumpkin. My favourite vegetable to carve with is butternut squash as it has a wonderful texture and gives awesome results.
Here I have used butternut squash primarily for the orange colour.

Carving and making garnishes from fruit and vegetable is a simple and enjoyable hobby, it requires no special tools just a simple sharp paring knife and a video tutorial telling you how to do it.If you wish to have a go checkout the simple instructions here.
