Tomato topiary tutorial

A few days back I was watching how edible make their fruit baskets on Food channel . That gave me an idea to attempt making a fruit basket.. My goal is to make a fruit basket like this.. hmmm.. thats lot of work.. My laziness gave me idea :) why not to make a easy tomato topiary instead of the fruit basket!! 

So this what the topiary looked like at the end of the trial.. 

Breakfast table

For this you need: 

tomato topiary

 Baby tomatoes or cherry tomatoes
A small pot(the orange should just sit on it and not go inside)
Orange ( which is not too ripe or juicy) 
Tooth picks

Start piercing toothpicks into the orange. Fix tomatoes into the tooth pick.

Place the orange on the vase.

Continue piecing toothpicks in it until the entire orange is covered.

Breakfast table

This could be decoration for the table or You can also serve mozzarella cheese sprinkled with basil leaves and the tomato topiary as a starter or appetizer like I do.. See here!!
