Cucumber Flower
For making this we need,
» Cucumber - 1
» Carrot - a small piece
» A sharp knife
» Peeler

For this all we need is a fresh cucumber without any dots or marks on it, and a small piece of carrot. A mix of Green, white and red colour will give a good eye appeal.

cut out the required length from the sharp edge of the cucumber

We will cut out the required length from the sharp edge of the cucumber. Now we will make a slit not too deeply, from the top to one side with a sharp knife till the end. Similarly slit the opposite side straight to the first slit. Then again at its 90 degree make a slit. Now repeat on the opposite side. Continue on all sides at equal intervals. In total make 8 slits.

peeler remove the inner central portion

Using a peeler remove the inner central portion with the seeds, smoothly. Make sure the seeds are fully removed. 

Shape each division to form a petal

Now slightly separate each division made with the slit. Shape each division to form a petal.

slit after holding each petal outwards

Now we will again slit each petal horizontally. Carefully slit after holding each petal outwards as it has all chances to break. The outer portion of the petal should be thinner than the inner one.

clearly visible and appear as an extra fitting

If these outer petals doesn't stand separately, then place small white pieces of cucumber in between the outer and inner petal. Do it only if the outer and inner petal does not stand separately. Make sure the small pieces are of white color and not green as it will be clearly visible and appear as an extra fitting.

carrot piece

Make fine lines across in both directions on top of the carrot piece.  Just press on top to make it separate. Keep it in the center of the cucumber flower.

Vegetable carving Cucumber Flowers

It is the easiest vegetable flower to make. We can arrange these flowers in salads by just cutting its bottom to make it stand erect, OR set it as a flower in a flower vase.
