Standing vegetable platters are a bit tricky to make but SO cute! What you’ll do is take 2 heads of cauliflower and turn them horizontally. Use toothpicks to stack them together and then place his carrot nose and olive eyes with additional toothpicks. Other vegetables like bell peppers and cucumber spears are positioned around with kale for added greenery and fullness.
3-D Christmas Tree of Vegetables
This 3-D standing Christmas tree is made by arranging broccoli and broccoflower around in a circle, using a toothpick to fasten layers as needed. Pearl onions, tiny tomatoes and yellow bell pepper stars are the ornaments with strips of bell pepper acting as garland. Cauliflower is arranged around the base as snow.
