An easy way to add an elegant touch to any meal is to dress up the butter. A plain glass dish will work fine for this. If you have a fancy butter dish, that will work too.
I use an ice cream scoop to dip the butter out of the large butter dish. I prefer the round shape, but if you have chocolate molds or candy molds, you can mold your butter into any shape you prefer.
Once the butter is molded, add edible flowers, leaves or even a sprinkling of your favorite spices. For the butter above, I chose lavender buds, dried dill weed and a sprinkling of chili powder. Since the butter was being used on dinner rolls, this combination of spices worked fine.
Experiment with your favorite combinations. Be sure to keep your butter refrigerated until time to serve it. You wouldn’t want to go to all that work to make an elegant presentation and find out it had melted before anyone got to see it.
My design above is random, but another idea is to use the flowers, herbs and spices to make a design. Have fun with this, don’t stress and remember if it doesn’t turn out right, no one will ever know. Part of the fun of edible art is eating your mistakes!
