For the carrotsPreheat oven to 350°F. Spray a round casserole dish with nonstick vegetable spray. Set aside Using a large pencil sharpener tool, sharpen a carrot, rotating it around 20-25 times until there is a long curled carrot piece. Form that piece into a rose. Repeat until you have around 24 roses. Place the carrots in the prepared round baking dish. Set aside.

I found rainbow carrots at Trader Joe's, but you can usually find them at your local grocery store or produce store. If you can't find them, you can use traditional orange carrots instead. Initially, I tried using very large carrots. I found that the thinner ones (not pencil thin) worked better than the fat ones.
