Some quick carving tips if you've never tried making your own lantern!

I LOVE pumpkin carving and it's become quite a tradition over the years in our home. Having a creative daugther always means theres just a little bit of friendly competition as far as our designs go and over the years we have built quite a portfolio... some good, some not so great. I want to share some tips today on getting the best from your carving and inspire you to have a go and create your own amazing designs!

Begin by cutting out the top. Use a sharp knife and work your way round, pushing the knife in and out until you have a circle of sorts.

Use the knife to ease the top out, making sure not to push too hard against the side wall and damage it. You might need to try it in different places until it comes up.
