After looking at this wonderful photo I'm not sure which took more time; making the butter curls or taking the photo. #5606917

aaaaa bbbbb March 07, 2008

When I saw the small post of this, I thought it was a bowl of develed eggs. Very creative idea. Great lighting and detail.

So how long did it take you do do these curls? #5606921

Marie Fields level-classic March 07, 2008

Thanks so much! It took WAY too long! LOL! On my first attempt, I gave up in frustration... then I researched tips for butter curling online and tried it again another day. It was quite a challenge, and I spent the whole morning getting enough curls to fill this tiny bowl! I think I got the hang of it now, though :) #5606941

However do you get your ideas, Marie? This is a wonderfully creamy image--love the tones! You must have quite an assortment of dishes and table linens :) #5609025

Fresh, creamy butter formed into curls with the extra bits and pieces of stick butter in the background. I found out that butter curling is not a natural talent for me! LOL!
