How to make dried pineapple flowers

If you’re tinting the slices, you’ll need about 15 drops of food color to a cup of water for each color. In addition to the plain (which come out a light yellow color) I did a deeper yellow, a pink, and an orange. Allow to soak for an hour or so, until you’re happy with the color.

Before serving, decorate cupcakes with slices of reserved strawberries. To form butterflies cut 2 slices lengthways down the middle of a strawberry. Cut each slice in half lengthways (this forms the wings for 2 butterflies). Cut 2 slivers from the strawberry offcuts to form 2 butterfly bodies. Place on top of two iced cupcakes to form butterflies. Continue with remaining strawberries. Enjoy nibbling on the remaining strawberry offcuts!
