No one will mind finding these little creatures sniffing around the crudité platter-and your kids won't mind eating them. To transform an ordinary radish into a mouse, all you need is a paring knife. First cut off the stem end, which will leave a small white circle for the nose. Then slice a bit off one side of the radish to give the mouse a flat, stable base.
Cut a small wedge out of the removed slice to make ears. Using the tip of the knife, make a slit near the stem end, and insert the ears in the slit. Leave the root intact for the tail.
A Good Idea
