Sakura and Plum Flowers with Just 3 Strawberries

Sakura and Plum Flowers with Just 3 Strawberries

These strawberry shapes are perfect for springtime parties, Girl's Day, or for decorating plates when you have guests. Use them as decorations on cakes and other desserts as well.

Ingredients: 1 serving

Strawberries
3 (equally sized)

Steps

1. 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.
2. Cut a small triangle out of the bottom of the centre strawberry slice.
3. Slice into two halves as shown in the photo.
4. 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.
