Fun Strawberry Mice

Strawberry Mice

I’m on a bit of a roll with the strawberry designing at the moment. Not sure why but keep thinking of different fun food plates I just have to make.

Here are my cute and simple strawberry mice.

Healthy party ideas

I used blueberries for the tails but you could just as easily make them from thinly sliced apple or even seeds like sunflower.

Recipe

– Strawberries. Bigger are easier to work with. I only had one with a pointy end (for a nose shape) so sliced the other two into shape. It was not uber perfect but they still looked cute!!

– Blueberries – for noses, eyes and tails

– Almond flakes – for ears

– Apple – for the cheese (could use any larger fruit)

Method

1. Cut the strawberry top off and if it doesn’t have a “pointy” end then slice into shape.

Strawberry Mice - 1 strawberries (1 of 1)

2. I made a little hole and stuck half a blueberry in for the nose.

Strawberry Mice - 2 noses (1 of 1)

3. Then did the same for the eyes.

Strawberry Mice - 3 eyes (1 of 1)

4. And made two incisions for the ears and inserted flaked almonds.

Strawberry Mice - 4 ears (1 of 1)

5. Then I cut more blueberries in half to make the tails (tapering at the end).

Strawberry Mice - 5 tails (1 of 1)

6. I sliced an apple quite thickly and then made into a triangle. I then cut little holes to give the impression of a holey cheese.

7. And there they were my strawberry mice ….
