Rinse the strawberries and cut off the stem. Cut off both sides of the strawberry leaving a slice roughly 1/4 of the original thickness in the middle.
Cut a small triangle out of the bottom of the centre strawberry slice.
Slice into two halves as shown in the photo.
Slice the other 2 strawberries in the same way, and when you have 6 petals, arrange them into flowers with 5 petals.
Story Behind this Recipe
When I saw a picture of strawberries arranged in the shape of a sakura flower in a magazine, I tried to come up with a use for the cut off ends as well. I changed the cuts and number of strawberries to find a way to make 2 types of flowers.
The trick is to match the colour and size of the strawberries.
