Tasty Tuesday: Edible Fruit Arrangement

In honor of Valentine's Day this week, I wanted to feature something special for Tasty Tuesday. This picture below is of my friends, Kara and Justin. Justin made this Edible Fruit Arrangement for Kara at Christmas time. I think the time he spent on it says LOVE big time! So I thought maybe some of you ladies might want to make one for your hubby, children or for a friend. Justin explained his process step by step:
"I used watermelon, red grapes, pineapple, cantaloupe, and honeydew. The kitchen tools included a standard paring knife, cookie cutters, a crinkle cutter and melon ball-er.

The base that the wooden skewers went into was a chunk of watermelon. Other suggestions included; a head of lettuce for clear bowls or for solid bowls you could use homemade play-do or one of the standard green foam floral pieces. The floral piece if used should be covered in plastic wrap first to keep the food from touching it.

The filler pieces between the fruit could be anything from fresh parsley to green or red leaf lettuce. I used the pieces off the top of my pineapple to keep from buying more product that was just filler anyway and wouldn't be eaten.

I believe the biggest trick to getting this to work well was to use cookie cutters that were thick and had no top handle on them so that the cookie cutter could be pushed all the way through the fruit. The thickness helped when putting the fruit on the skewer, the thin pieces break easily especially the pineapple.

Some arrangements use strawberries and other fruits and dip them in chocolate which looks nice. This project does take some time. If you want to see some others go to http://www.ediblearrangements.com/ and try to copy one."

I went to the Edible Arrangements website that Justin suggested and the Valentine Arrangements are adorable! These would be fun for Easter or a summer picnic too!

I am participating in Tempt Your Tummy Tuesday, Dining With Debbie , Balancing Beauty and Bedlam and Tuesdays at the Table recipe exchanges. For more blogger recipes go to these links.

Really beautiful. I haven't done an edible fruit creation before. I am sure my daughter would really enjoy doing this with me.
