  • Paring Knife & Skewers


  • 8 California Strawberries


  • Wash strawberries and pat them dry.
  • Hold the strawberry in your non-dominant hand from the stem, so that the strawberry is facing upwards.
  • Starting halfway down the strawberry, slice about ¾ inch down (length will vary depending on size of strawberry) on the side of the strawberry to create a “petal.”
  • Before removing the knife, use it to gently curl the “petal” outwards by pressing it back.
  • Repeat on the other three sides of the strawberry to create four base “petals.”
  • Repeat this process for the row above the base, cutting between the existing “petals” so that they are staggered. Curl each petal back with the knife.
  • Continue to create staggered “petals” until you reach the top of the strawberry.
  • Slit the top of the strawberry to create a rose “bud.”
  • Gently push back each of the “petals” to create your desired rose shape.
  • Once the rose is complete, push the pointy end of a skewer into the bottom of the strawberry until it feels secure. Adjust petals as needed.
  • Repeat this process with as many strawberries as you would like to create a rose “bouquet.”
