It`s better to cut flowers from the berries of round shape — they look like the roses more.

1. Start cutting at the base of the berry (hear the peduncle). Make 4-5 incisions round 8-10 mm. depth.

2. With a knife bend each petal out at once.

The petals of the second row are cut out staggered with respect to the first row and they are made less (7-8 mm.). They`ll turn out a triangle shape but not circular.

4. Go on cutting the rows of the petals — usually 3-4 rows turn out.

Then proceed to creativity! The cut out parts can be used separately for decorating the dessert plates and desserts themselves; or you may compose different patterns out of them joining flowers and leaves, flowers and fans, making up huge flowers from fans. You can add varied fruit — the whole and cut. Only your imagination can limit the design possibilities.
