Sweet Potato Vegetable Carving

This photo is a sweet potato vegetable carving that I tried this week, I used some lettuce and carved them into leaves just for plate presentation. It was my first time carving a sweet potato and it holds up very well!

Pumpkin Carving With My Niece

These photos are of the pumpkin I carved with my niece. I had her practice on paper what she wanted to draw on the pumpkin and then let her draw it on the pumpkin with crayon. I evened out the mouth line (while she was not looking) and then moved the pumpkin saw in and out while she held on. I thought it turned out well and was thrilled with the outcome, although she did not like the part of taking the "icky" seeds out!
