Hi Cute Garnish,

My sister made this ever so cute Olive Penguin for the cheese tray on Christmas.  I love extra touches like this.  And it was very tasty.

Here is how to make it:

Olive Penquin

  • Feet – a slice of carrot with a triangle cut out of it
  • Body – two pitted black olives
  • Scarf – a green onion end
  • Nose – a small piece of carrot
  • Toothpicks


  1. Take the two black olives and join together with a toothpick leaving part of the toothpick to attach the feet.
  2. Add the scarf between the olives and tie it as you would a scarf.
  3. Add the nose in the hole where the pit was removed.
  4. Attach the feet.

So cute.

May your dishes have surprises like Olive Penguins.

To sisters who like to add cute surprises.
