WOW!  These are strawberry roses are gorgeous and you won’t believe how easy they are to make!  You will need about 2 minutes per strawberry… yes, they are that easy!

For the rose stems, I purchased roses at the dollar store and used those as my stems.  You can use skewers or lollipop sticks as well.  I recommend placing the stick or stem into the strawberry before you begin so you don’t crush the leaves once it’s done.

These make a beautiful addition to a fruit plate or would be perfect for a bridal shower or Valentine’s day (you can even make them chocolate dipped)!  The kids would also love them as a special snack dipped in whipped cream!

Things you’ll need for this recipe:

  1. Wash and completely dry your strawberries. Insert the lollipop stick or rose stem in the bottom of each strawberry. (If you do it after they’re cut it squishes the petals).
  2. Starting at the bottom, cut “petals” slightly angled towards the center of the strawberry but don’t cut all the way through. You want to cut about 1/4″ down on the first row on the bottom. (I was able to get about 5-6 “petals” on the bottom row).
  3. Using the knife, gently bend each cut piece out so it can slightly curl out creating a petal shape.
  4. With the remaining rows, it works best to cut as close to the skin/red as possible as the piece will curl out better. Start the next row of petals going in between the petals you have already cut.
  5. Continue all of the way to the top. Serve immediately.

  1. It is very creative and with lots of patient.

  2. Will they last longer if you cover them with chocolate or drizzle with a little lime juice?? Is there something to preserve them a little after cutting??

  3. Does anyone know where I can buy the plastic rose stem?

  4. THIS IS A MUST TRY. I TRY TO THINK OF DIFFERENT THINGS TO DI WITH MY CHILDREN. ESPECIALLY IN THIS COLD WEATHER

  5. possibly use a stir stick for the stem

  6. I love the rose strawberry and the site!!

  10. Wow! I love these Penny! They look like they would be difficult, but you explained how so nicely. Thank you for linking up to our Inspiration Monday Party…I pinned your roses a couple times, and I’m going to feature your roses in a couple minutes on FB. Have a great week! ~ Julie redheadcandecorate.com

  11. I hopped over from ‘I should be mopping the floor”. What a great idea, I have never seen anything quite like this and most definitely will have to try to make some.

  12. How gorgeous! Thank you for sharing!

  13. for the stems, I’m using skewers and dyeing them with food dye over night

  14. these are so pretty. I love strawberries. Thanks for linking up at Tell Me About It Tuesday. We hope you hop over and share with us again next week.

  15. Awesome! It does look easy. I have seen radishes like this too!

  16. Wow, I would love to get a bouquet of these instead of real flowers! Yummy!

  17. That is so cute. I wish I had seen it earlier today, before I committed every strawberry in the house to some other project. We have to try this. Thank you so much for sharing. I love this site.

  18. Gosh I wish I would have seen this last week as I was preparing for V day! Definitely going to book mark this one for future reference, thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for linking up with us at Tell Me About It Tuesday! I hope you hop over again next week. http://www.sweetsillysara.com/2014/02/welcome-to-tell-me-about-it-tuesday-and.html

  20. this is so neat. i wish i would have known about this, my boyfriend loves strawberries.

  21. You could even leave off the stem and use the “rose” as a cupcake topper.

  22. Love the strawberry roses. I for sure am going to try this for a dinner or party at my Church. I see all the ideas on here and pinterest and the ladies at Church thinks I am really smart. (Do I have them fooled, YES). I also do a lot of cakes for Church and going to use this on some of them instead of making icing roses. Thanks for posting.

  23. Ladies before running out and buying all the supplies for the stems make sure you’ve practiced a few to get the hang of it, it’s not as easy as it looks! Your strawberries need to be really firm and the sharp knife a must and then its still takes practice and lots of patience!

  24. One more comment…. Holly they look fantasti!

  25. Just wanted to thank you for this lovely idea!

  26. gonna make a bouqette for each of my daughters teachers

  27. how do you serve right away? if I was to make these it would be for an event and would have to be done that morning. will they store well in fridge for a few hrs?

    • I would suggest doing a trial run of just a few (which is great for practice) and storing them in the fridge. It will give you an idea of how long ahead of time you can make them. :)

  28. these are so adorable and I can’t wait to share them with everyone!

  29. Love these. Endless uses. How about cake garnishes? Thanks. Used to watch my Mom do this with radishes.

  30. So cute :) Perfect for Valentines day.

  31. Hi very nice I made for Valentines Day for a friend it came out so nice I was going to make again for Mother’s Day I used Nutella for the chocolate. Saw it on a cook show. Not from here.

  32. Great mothers day gift
