    Hi,
    Does anybody know of a website that gives instructions on how to cut veggies into fun shapes like roses and palm trees and so on. I work at a library in Germany and we do not have any books like that and I have a patron who needs some help. Thanks a bunch

    Garnish a spring dinner-party plate with this clever carrot-and-pepper palm tree and baby squashes.

    Carrot-and-Pepper Palm Tree

    Materials:

    fat carrots
    knife
    green bell peppers
    toothpick
    baby squash
    peanut butter

    Steps:

    Slice off the big end of a fat carrot.

    Cut a green bell pepper to resemble the top of a palm tree.

    Score the carrot to look like a palm tree trunk.

    Secure the bell pepper top onto the carrot with a toothpick.

    Place on a plate and surround with baby squashes.
    * Note: If the carrot is having difficulty standing up, place a dab of peanut butter under the trunk.
