    1. Slice carrot into coins. Cut out a round shape using a plastic cap or small round cookie cutter as a guide.

    2. Use a diamond-shaped (or square) cookie cutter to cut small "V" shapes around the edge of the carrot slice.

    3. If you don't have a cookie cutter, cut out an upside-down "V" shape around the carrot slice using a knife.

    5. You can precut and store carrot flowers frozen. Before storing, cook the carrots in boiling water for about 1 minute (depending on the size of the flower). Plunge the cooked carrots in ice water to stop the cooking. Dry the carrots well and place in a storage container, not touching and layered with plastic and freeze, Sprinkle the carrot flowers on the bento in the morning and they will be thawed by lunchtime.
