    These are very pretty garnishes which, once carved can be left raw, sauteed in butter (or garlic butter) or brushed with butter (or garlic butter) and baked. Once you get the hang of it, they are not hard to do. As always, a good, well sharpened knife is of paramount importance. And it helps if you're patient.



    Use the stem (which you will lop off when you're done) to help you get a good grip on the mushroom. Make your inverted v cuts as evenly as possible around the mushroom.




    You can use the tip of your knife to carve a star shape in the center of the mushroom.



    Or, if you wanted to devote your life to decorating mushrooms, you could try for something like this:

    Here is one of the radish mice we talked about.


    These are so easy and would look lovely on a cheese tray for the holidays.

    Looks almost too real. Particularly the tail.

    I love it, Susie!

    Thanks. I usually use a more oblong shaped radish, but all I could find this time were the round ones. icon_confused.gif For the face (not shown) stick tiny cloves in for eyes.
