These pretty looking strawberries make for a great festive table edible decoration. Deceptively simple that this recipe is, the best part is that it can be made hours in advance and still looks as great. Dust with some icing sugar and dress the plate up with some fresh mint leaves for a more christmas-y effect.
You will need:
1 cup of Heavy whipping cream
12 pieces of Fresh medium sized strawberries
3 tablespoons of Castor Sugar
Wash and dry all the strawberries thoroughly.
Slightly cut the leafy hull part to form a flat base.
Make a cross mark from the pointy end till halfway down the strawberry so that it opens up like a petal.
In a clean bowl whisk together the cream with the sugar to form slightly stiff peaks. Be careful not to overwhip the cream.
Fill the whipped cream in a piping bag with a star nozzle (wilton 1 M) and fill each strawberry with the cream.
Serve cold. The very British strawberries and cream presented in a modern way.
