To prepare the Star Apple do the following (see video above):

  1. Remove the core of the apple with the apple corer;

  3. Present the apple (still closed) to your audience and then gently separate both halfs.

The next Step in this Instructable gives three other Works of Edible Art, released previously by openproducts and thus not eligible for the 2015 Edible Art Contest.

The next Step shows a video on how to prepare the Star Apple.
