design fruit like a pro
This basic fruit design will show you how easy arranging can be. An apple- not styrofoam- is used to keep everything in place. The key is to crunch the kale into a tight ball at the start to ensure that only your pretty fruit display is visible after you're finished. For extra flare, dip the strawberries in chocolate first!
