This Strawberry Topiary holds over 50 strawberries. I found a fun ceramic pot, put Styrofoam inside and used toothpicks to anchor a 15 inch Styrofoam cone on top. Next is the fun part, start at the bottom and cover the cone with clean orange or lemon leafs. Push a toothpick 2/3 inch into the strawberry, start at the bottom again, then push the remaining toothpick into the Styrofoam cone. These are a hit at any event. You may want to dip a few strawberries in chocolate too.

Milk Chocolate Lighthouse

This three dimensional Lighthouse is made with milk chocolate coatings. I made sand with cinnamon and sugar and added a few real seashells with a fisherman's net. It makes a great eatable center piece.
This recipe and many others are in my book Chocolates By Imagination Spring and Summer. click here for ordering information. Or go to
