As much as she would enjoy a floral bouquet, you can give Mom more than just a flowers she can look at. You can create a bouquet of strawberry roses can eat!

What you'll need
Strawberries (firm so they hold their shape)
A Pairing Knife
Lollipop Sticks


Insert lollipop sticks into the base of your strawberry. Use some candy melts or chocolate on the lollipop stick and at the base to use as the “glue” if you find that your strawberries will not stay.

Place your paring knife in a similar position as the photo above.

Cut down but do not cut all the way through. When you get close to the bottom, angle your knife away from the strawberry  so the petal angles outward like in the photo above.

Repeat this five times around the base of the strawberry.

For the second layer, do the same thing, but cut these petals so it is positioned between two of the bottom petals.

Repeat this around the strawberry five times. Now  for the center of the rose, you can either keep repeating these layers until you get to the tip, or you can cut a spiral as shown below:

Point your knife downwards and cut a spiral to the tip of the strawberry. Use your knife or finger to spread the spiral apart so it looks like a row of petals leading to the tip of the strawberry.

If you want you create a rosebud, follow all the same steps as above but do not angle the petals away from the main strawberry body.
