Food DIY Art: Cool Radish Mushrooms
In no time you will have the perfect garnish to your salad or dinner plate. These Cool Radish mushrooms are very versatile. Quite honestly, you can get as creative as you want with them. I am already thinking about a full blown food forest with broccoli trees for our spring, summer and easter parties! But first, let me share how we made these Cool Radish Mushrooms:
- washed radishes
- a knife
- First thing to do is the stalk of the mushroom. Take your radish with the leaves or where the leaves should be upwards.
- Next, cut around the radish below the middle of it
- Then make cuts as if you were going to make a square out of that piece
- Try to round off the “square” by shaving off the rough edges
- Now that you have your mushroom shaped, give it the white dots by cutting in a circular motion on the mushroom cap. Repeat this as many times as you want the white dot
Cool Mom Tip: it might be tricky to get a perfect circle if you are not a knife expert. Not to worry, give it a shot. Not all mushrooms are the same or perfect. You will still get the desired effect
Here is a step by step video, you will agree it is mega easy!
Getting Lost in a Mushroom Village
I must admit that the inspiration for our Food DIY/ Art today is the newest Smurf village. We love the Smurfs, and I always wonder what it would be like to have a mushroom for a home! Maybe not so good for me since I love mushroom. I would have a bit out of every place of my cozy living space :-). Cool Radish Mushrooms can help you play out your own Smurf Village or you can set them is the mysterious forest that Smurfette and her gang of friends ventures into! Let me tell you more about this empowering movie, read on.
About Smurfs: The Lost Village
In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a mysterious lost village before the evil wizard Gargamel does. Embarking on a rollercoaster journey full of action and danger, the Smurfs are on a course that leads to the discovery of the biggest secret in Smurf history!
You Will Find Plenty From the Lost Village
We enjoyed the advance screening of Smurfs: The Lost Village very much. From the start, you can’t help but root for a group of friends, helping and supporting each other. I love how they embrace their differences. They do respect each other. As the movie unfolds, the tale becomes one of empowerment. It is also one of self-discovery and also tolerance of others. Brimming with moments to teach about values, it is also full of adventure, fun, and humor. I loved discovering that Smurfette is actually made from clay by Gargamel to trap The Smurfs!
