Slice mozzarella cheese into rounds. Using a small and medium heart-shaped cookie cutter or a sharp paring knife, create small and medium-sized hearts from the cheddar and white cheddar or Swiss cheeses. You want to use two different colored cheeses to create an eye-catching display when layered.

Cut 2 slices of smoked turkey in half, and wrap the turkey around the grissini breadsticks. Create the salami and turkey roses by rolling the layers together as shown in the video.
