Knock Off Edible Arrangements

CIMG0784I don’t know about you but I sure cannot afford an Edible Arrangement, but I sure do think they are great.  I sometimes tell my husband I want to work there for a week so I can learn their tricks.  But I think this about a lot of jobs.  Any job for one week would probably be fun. 

I was not quite adventurous enough to make an arrangement…that would require much more planning.  But I did have a pineapple and I did have a flower cookie cutter.  I sliced the pineapple into circles and used the cookie cutter to cut out the flower shape.  So simple!  And to many of your guests, the fact that you took the time to cut your pineapple into a flower, will wow them enough.  

What fancy presentation tricks do you have when it comes to food?

  1. That's a great idea! And I like the part about being a "fake" worker too. ;)

  2. I can't say I would ever buy one of those but I would sure eat the chocolate covered strawberries any time!

  3. I think they look so good. The chocolate covered Strawberries at Easter looked amazing. LOL I like your version too and think that the week long job would be great. You would get paid to learn a craft. LOL

  6. I made my own edible arrangement about four years ago. I had the flower cut pineapple, the crinkle cut (thank you Pampered Chef) cantaloupe and honeydew, the grapes, the strawberries. I even bought flower foam, stuck it in a basket and covered it with curly lettuce before I stuck all the kebabs of fruit on it. My thought? Save up and buy one. It took FOREVER to make and buying all the fruit was kind of pricey.
