Now add a Taster (Jenny in this example) to taste your fruit salad and get them to score their results.
Now you can Evaluate the results of the fruit salad and see if it needs improving.
Just fill in the spaces for Evaluation.
Download the JPG to present in your work.
You can annotate the Star with more comments.
The final Star Profile compares the results of fats in pastry to see how they taste. You can add several types of pastry to the star to compare results and annotate.
