Johnna Holloway provided a wedsite mentioned that fruit and veggies are 
carved to create subtleties. At one point I was invited to a lady's home 
who had a movie theater and was able to get US movies before the 
premiers.  One time the before movie snack consisted of her long dining 
room table filled with the cook's creations of roses and other flowers 
and perhaps animals (I can´t remember) carved out of veggies and fruit. 
In buffet style we plucked off the petals. At that point they were 
advertising some kind of plastic instrument on TV that was suppose to do 
that. I brought one and no way. All my radishes turned in to chopped 
radishes :'( and not the pretty flowers as advertised. So when I saw 
that dining room table covered with so many gorgeous and artist flowers 
etc I was in awe. It is a super idea but I don't know how she did it! I 
guess it is like ice carvings. Cooks can produce ice carvings that are 
better then some sculptors. The only successful ice figures I have made 
are in ice trays in the form of some little figure. . .
