THE CARVE III at the Holland Farmer’s Market was a blast. Here are the winners and competitors of the People’s Choice division of the competition. The attendees of The Carve voted for their favorite vegetable carving arrangement. I was thrilled to be  awarded the first prize. Brandon D”Arca won the 2nd prize and Nicole Bennett took the third prize. Enjoy these photos. To see the photos larger, just click on any photo below.

      I’ll have some beginner lessons available soon. In the meantime, check out my Hearts and Roses DVD lessons that I also made for beginners. These lessons don’t require any special tools. //

      Sorry, I didn’t expressed mylesf properly, I meant the flesh you carve, you could cook it In other words, you need to clear the pumpkin until it’s empty in order to put some candles and so. Therefore, all the flesh you are about to remove carving the pumpkin can be cooked I think now makes more sense what I meant, sorry for the misunderstanding.

        Yes, if you like, you can cook the pumpkin flesh that you carve away.

    My website is under construction and due to be up by year end. Nita thanks so much for sharing with me. Your fruit and vegetable carving display is very beautiful along with the others who competed in the competition of the culinary art displays. It was fun seeing the displays of what can be done and all the artistic ability of the different challengers. With it being fall I really enjoyed looking at the Christmas Santa as we look ahead to that season fast approaching! Thanks again, Lisa Danzer
