Thank you very much!

The trick to the apple is to have a bowl of lemon water (1 part lemon juice and 2 parts water) nearby to dip the apple into everytime you expose the meat.

The fish is a 1/2 Roma tomato with the skin peeled back and pieces of carrot and cucumber.

If you are interested in making any of these, they are all part of my newsletter lessons I offer on my blog. Just go to my contact info on my profile page for my blog address. I use lots of pictures and break down the steps, most people are surprised how easy they are to make!

Oh and in case anyone is wondering, the 3rd carving is a sweet potato.

Great pics, thanks for sharing!

You guys might think I am nuts but I like the red onion carving best, mostly because I have never done it myself or seen it done by anyone before! The layers of the onion make it more challenging than a solid veggie.

Here is some more of my fruit and veggie carvings:

Wow, the arrangement is nice, but I agree the face looks like Freddy Kreuger! Imagine eating that after the display
