Watermelon Whale

Summer is here!  One of my favorite things about summer is fruit.  I absolutely love all kinds so I generally like to bring fruit to any party that requires me to prepare a dish because its something I love and it doesn't require heating or refrigeration.  The only thing is, I always forget to bring home my dish.  It normally happens every time so this time, I wanted to make a watermelon boat to hold all the fruit.  This allowed me to leave it behind.

I decided to make a Watermelon Whale. Isn't he cute?

I'm not sure it was a good idea to make it right before the event because it did take a little bit of time to carve it out and cut everything up.   

I first outlined where I was going to cut on the watermelon.


I started to carve, using my outline as a guidance.


Once I was done, I popped off the top.  It was surprisingly easy to do.


I touched up the corners and then I started to scoop out the watermelon to make it hollow.



I carved out the eyes and mouth as well as cut up all the fruit.

 I mixed all the fruit in a large bowl since I thought it would be easier to do than trying to mix it up in the watermelon itself


Once all the fruit was mixed up, I poured it into my whale and added the blueberries for eyes and spout.


It makes me smile when I look at it.

What do you think?
