Watermelon Baby Carriage

Monday, May 31, 2010

Made this for Melodys Baby Shower :)

What you need:

1 medium watermelon
4 orange slices
4 kiwi slices
4 blueberries
1 medium cantaloupe, cut into cubes
2 cups red grapes
2 cups green grapes
2 cups blueberries
2 cups halved fresh strawberries


With a sharp knife, cut a thin slice from bottom of melon it sits flat. Take a sharpie and draw the outline that you're going to cut.

Take a knife or toothpick and puncture holes into the bottom layer to create the weep holes for the watermelon juice.

Use a knife to cut the shape of the carriage hood and sides. You will not need to cut in very deep because the skin is so thin. The sides of the carriage will be slightly under the halfway mark of the watermelon.
You can create a carriage handle out of the portion of the shell you cut out.

Scoop out the watermelon in the "baby carriage" and transfer it into another container. Place the watermelon carriage on the serving dish.

Mix the watermelon with other fruit to create a fruit salad.

Create the wheels for your watermelon using oranges. Slice the oranges anywhere between 1/2 inch to an inch thick. Attach the wheels to the watermelon using toothpicks.
To create the hubcap you can use Kiwi and blueberry.
