Handmade Mini Canape Cutter From Turkey Injector To Garnish Food

  We have disposable injector left after every time we baked a turkey, it comes with flavored butter jar. I kept them because it doesn’t take much space in my kitchen and I may reuse in the future. When I see the idea online, I decided to add this idea to my collection on my website. May some people have injectors left, as we are and give injector second life and purpose. It works very well to make colorful bite layered canape or fruit bites and fruit kabobs. Great and safe a project for kids to do.


Don’t throw away excess of food! We can use meat, cheese, and bread from making mini canape. Like example, make an omelet meat and cheese for breakfast or it can be a great topping for a baked potato.

The photo below is my mini canape maker set more than 20 years old and I brought it from Russia. You can find online sets mini canape maker these days too. Shapes of heart, star, and flowers are cute! However, just injector works very well for the task.
