FANCY BUTTER ROSE

img_1093Here’s a fun addition to impress your guest at your holiday feasts, the best part is that its super easy!

What you will need:

2 sticks of cold refrigerated butter

A small plate or platter

A sharp knife

It’s important to start with cold cold butter, because it is easier to work with.

Cut the first stick of butter in half, in wrap and place on the platter , this becomes your base for the rose.

Unwrap the second stick of butter. Hold it so a cornered side is up, and begin to peel the butter. Make the first peel into a tight spiral shape. Don’t worry if it’s not perfect. Shape into a small circle, this becomes the middle of your rose. Continue to peel the butter and shape around working from the inside out. These become your petals. Alternate which sides you places the petals on.

The more you peel, the wider the petals will become until your rose is fully bloomed. I like to go as far out as I can to try to cover the entire base.

If you want you can add detail to the base. I tried to add a rose bud and some leaves, but my butter was getting too soft. After you are finished, refrigerate until you are ready to use, this will allow the rose to firm up and hold its shape.

What are some fun details you like to add to your table?
