Happy Valentine’s Day! I meant to get this post up earlier this week so you could make a bouquet of these strawberry roses for your Valentine, whomever that may be! However, life got in the way this week as it tends to do, and I’m just sneaking this post in at the last minute.
If you’re still looking for a Valentine’s Day project, or just want a way to add a little fanciness to your morning fruit bowl, look no further. Strawberry roses are incredibly easy to make, and are the perfect garnish to a cake, cupcakes, or simply your plate. I made these for the first time exactly a year ago as toppers to Nutella cupcakes (another recipe I’ll have to share with you eventually!).
There are a lot of step-by-step photos here, but as there’s really no recipe, I hope you’ll forgive the scrolling and just enjoy looking at the pictures. All you need is a sharp paring knife, and some strawberries and you’re set to go. The petals come to life from a series of cuts in the strawberry, starting at the bottom and moving up in layers.
