Watermelon Basket Fruit Carving

The watermelon basket is one of the most popular and easy fruit carving presentations around.

All it takes is a few simple cuts, and some prepared fruit salad to fill it with, and you're on your way to your first fun party fruit carving centerpiece:

You'll need:

· 1 medium-to-large-sized watermelon
· non-toxic water-ink marker
· A sharp knife
· spoon
· prepared fruit salad


1. First, cut a thin piece off the bottom of the watermelon so that it sits flat on a plate without rolling.

2. Make your design on the watermelon with a water marker and cut around until pieces separate easily.

3. Carefully cut the fruit away from the basket "handle" and slowly scrape away any remaining fruit with a spoon or melon baller.

4. Next, hollow out the basket. Reserve fruit to mix with the fruit salad.

5. Decorate the rim with V cuts as shown.

6. Add fresh grapes, cherries, pineapple chunks and melon balls, or use a commercially prepared fruit salad to fill your basket.
