A beautifully carved Apple resting on a plate of dessert or fruit salad is the perfect dinner idea. I created the V shaped wedges to give the staggering effect. An Apple Swan can also be created with with V shaped wedges on both sides to create the wings. Swan's face and neck can be created with a slice cut from the base and carved . Fit the neck and head snugly in the body cavity with a small tooth pick. Those are my son's cute little hands. My daughter picking the fresh Apple from the Apple tree, in a farm.
Wash and dry the Apple and cut off the node.
With a sharp pairing knife, make two small V shaped wedges. on the top half of the Apple. Finish off the V shaped wedges with another 5 or 6 parellels with 1/4 " apart.
Push the wedges gently towards the back so that they are staggered to look like wings.
Tip: To prevent discolouration, sprinkle the whole apple with lemon juice.
