Easter Ideas – Food Carving

Easter Ideas - Carved Vegetable Calla LiliesEaster is coming up quickly, so here are some pretty Easter ideas for food carvings.

Calla Lilies which bloom in the Spring have long been a symbol of purity and beauty, resurrection and rebirth. Commonly used for Easter celebrations and weddings the calla lily has a simple and beautiful elegance.

I carved the Calla Lilies that you see pictured here from vegetables. It’s really quite simple. When I make these at Easter, usually at least one person asks me if they are real flowers.

You can put them in bunches. Or, a single vegetable Calla Lily on a plate can make a very elegant place setting. They are edible, too. Well the carved vegetable version of the Calla Lily is edible. Don’t get confused and try to eat a real lily. They are reputed to be poisonous!

The carved calla lilies, melon bunny and fruit bouquets pictured just above and just below are all taught in my Vegetable and Fruit Carving 101 Course for Beginners. The lessons are also available as individual DVDs.

These also make great Easter ideas. The vegetable bouquet pictured below is also taught in my Vegetable and Fruit Carving 101 Course for Beginners. For a fast pretty veggy bouquet, you can skip the carved vegetable flowers completely, although they certainly add a lovely special touch.
