  • Sharp paring knife
  • Wooden skewer or popsicle stick


  • 12 ripe strawberries


  • Start by inserting the wooden skewer into the leafy end of the strawberry. 
  • Beginning at the base of the strawberry, use your paring knife to make thin cuts straight down into the strawberry (not towards the center). 
  • Gently curl the slices towards you to create "petals." Repeat this all the way around the strawberry -- you should get 4-5 cuts depending on the size of the berry.
  • When you complete the petals around the base, move up one level to create the next row of petals and repeat the same process - slice and lightly curl toward you. The petals look best if you make the cuts where two of the petals below it meet.
  • Finally, move up another tier and repeat the process once again. When you reach the top of the strawberry, cut a few small slits and gently pull them apart.
