Cut flowers may be beautiful, but you can't eat them. Why not break from tradition and make your sweetheart(s) an edible bouquet of strawberry roses instead! They're easy to make and a sweet treat to eat. I guarantee you will get huge bonus points for putting in the extra handmade effort. Here's how to make a dozen, long stemmed, strawberry roses.

Step 1: Supplies

  • organic medium sized strawberries*
  • 12" bamboo skewers
  • bunch of inexpensive roses
  • green floral tape
  • pairing knife
  • rose vase
  • white sugar, rice, or small white rocks
  • whipped cream or dipping chocolate

*I bought two containers so that I'd end up with at least 14-16 good looking, similar sized berries. I wanted to end up with 12 good ones and left myself some practice wiggle room.

<p>Thank you! Strawberry Roses is the best for Valentines Days.</p><p><br>You can see the tutorial step by step here: <a href="https://www.shamana.co/en/video/player/387-strawberry-roses" rel="nofollow">https://www.shamana.co/en/video/player/387-strawbe...</a></p>
<p>p.s.: you can simply ask for a few rose leaves at the floral counter of your supermarket. I do stuff like that all the time and they've never refused me. That's either because I ask very nicely or because they're used to the requests from the crazy lady who asks for leaves. ?</p>
<p>Wow. I've been cooking forever, but this is something completely new and different, as well as gorgeous! I know what I'm making for my family and friends on Valentines day. This is an over the top present that won't leave me broke. Thank you for sharing this cool instructable.</p>
<p>Those look so real like roses! Bravo, and good for garnishing a beautiful dish, too. Good 'ible. Keep it up. Probably can use other fruits and veggies to put on skewers, but it's the rose leaves that really clinch the illusion</p>
<p>This would be the best Valentine gift to wake up to in the morning! Great project!</p>
<p>I can't believe how easy these actually are, I thought they were going to be so much more complicated and time-consuming ! </p>
<p>Yep, less then 10 cuts and you got a beautiful flower!</p>
<p>This is great! Only I found a day too late. My sweeties B'day was yesterday. :/</p><p>Oh well, there's always next year! =^D</p>
<p>Happy belated birthday gift?</p>
<p>Ah, there are other methods of doing this of course... I prefer the method of making 4 large cuts on the bottom, however at a low angle, then curving the tips outwards with a knife, making sure the cuts are all touching at the corners. Then, above all corners, make 4 more smaller cuts, also curving them outwards with knife. Then, repeat once more ONLY if there is room left over, then on the VERY tip of the strawberry, make a small slice through the center of ONLY THE TIP. It comes out narrower, but it also fits in your mouths more easily :D</p>

<p>So beautiful! I attempted this once in the past and failed! So this helps a lot!</p>
<p>Ah just like <a rel="nofollow">mine</a> but bigger! I never tried it with whipped cream. Also my strawberries were too small to try out opening like yours. Love the look of your strawberries!</p>
<p>Fantastic Idea!</p>
<p>Wow, that's very cool.</p><p>I will try it out.</p>
These are awesome! Made them for a friend who was in a play and she agreed that they're much better than regular roses because you can eat them!
<p>I just bought 2 pounds of strawberries for tomorrow. This is way better than eating them plain haha! Thanks for sharing this!!</p>
