My friend's mom made this once as the centerpiece for a fruit tray and I took a crack at it. So now I am here to show all of you do it as well! :)

Cut a smaller wedge out of the one you just cut leaving about a quarter of an inch of the first wedge.

Step 5: Cut Yet Another Wedge

Cut a smaller wedge from the wedge you just cut so you have sizes resembling the picture. Repeat steps 3-5 for the other side making sure to leave some uncut apple (3/4-1 inch is good).

Step 6: Assemble Wedges

Cut a small hole for the head in the body and stick the neck in there. You now have an apple swan! (you may want to sprinkle it with lemon juice to preserve it)
