Cranberries have become one of my favorite things at Christmas time. This year I have used them to decorate with, and to garnish with. Hopefully next week I will be able to post some decorating pictures.
The picture below shows some garnishing I did with cranberries. I placed them around a berry pie; one that I slaved all day over! Not! I actually bought it, but when I put it up on a pedestal
And placed my wonderful, red cranberries around it and then sprinkled powdered sugar on them for a "snow" effect, it lost some of it's store bought look!
When we have fellowships at church my food is not the food that gets the blue ribbon prize for taste. I have brought quite a few almost full dishes back home with me, if you know what I mean! Well, I'll let you in on a little secret I learned. The presentation of the food is a major part of the meal. So, I've learned to "garnish" the food to be presentable even if it isn't edible!
This Razzel Dazzle Berry pie by Marie Calendar, got dazzled a little moe and taken to a Christmas party tonight. Guess what! Not only did it get eaten almost gone, but it was also a topic of conversation around the dessert table!
I'm just cranzy bout cranberries!
