How to Cut Fruit Into Shapes


Creatively shaped fresh fruit has a variety of uses. Create an edible bouquet by arranging the cut fruit onto bamboo skewers and inserting them into a foam-filled bowl, bucket or other decorative vessel. As another option, use the fruit shapes to garnish party appetizer trays. You can tempt kids into eating more fruit by cutting it into flower, star and heart shapes. Use basic cookie cutters to create perfectly cut slices of fruit.
