|We’re talking about repurposing the cocktail picks used for skewering olives, also known as fruit picks and party picks. We use them to stack berries and grapes to garnish a dessert. Embellish cakes, ice cream, puddings…you can stand a pick vertically in a cupcake or add one to the saucer of a cup of tea or coffee. Make savory garnishes, too: The olives and onions that garnish a cocktail can also garnish main courses and salads. Also think gherkins and mini vegetable kebabs. Picks are creative hostess gifts—just choose generic designs so you won’t be skewering your grapes with ceramic olives or raspberries.
