1.Place the main body of the bird onto the serving plate first such as slices of cold meats as in the image. I layered the slices of cold meats over one another and in x4 rows down and x3-4 rows across.
2.Place the 2 dips at the top of the bird’s body as created in step 1. Place the cucumber chunks into the 2 dips (the skin side facing out for more colour).
3.Add the curved strips of yellow pepper around the sides of the bird’s body (for feathers!).
4.Place the carrot sticks side by side at the top of the dips on the serving dish .
