Drink Garnish: Lil Orange Sun

>>  11/29/2010

You have probably noticed my love to oranges and yellow colour. Today we have oranges on market all the year round. When I was a child we had oranges imported by the new year holidays only. So I think, unconsciously I have got a mind connection "orange - holiday". Since I learned the art of food presentation I am able to provide a holiday all the year round. This thought came to my mind right now...

Ok, let's leave the psychoanalysis behind and go back to oranges :)

 I have found these pictures of orange decorations inspecting my files. I made them for my class presentation on drink garnishing. There is garnish cut out of orange skin (call it Sunny orange garnish). For ice cubes I used a silicone mold in a shape of dolphins

This is a fairy tale about the Fruit Princess and her kingdom all made from fruits and vegetables. In this fruit carving arrangement you find the beloved characters like Prince and pumpkin carriage. This is not the exact story about Cinderella, and the pumpkin carriage is actually a melon carriage. And yes, I let children play this it. Let them make up thier own story about the princess.

Exploring the details. What is it made from?

White horse and pumpkin carriage. 
I used a sweet melon to make the carriage. Horse is carved out of a huge white radish (aka daikon or horse radish)
