Fun Watermelon Car

Watermelon Car

There are some amazing carvings to be made from watermelons. Alas I am neither that talented nor patient so do my simple versions of “carvings” which are met with gratifying enthusiasm from the mini chefs never-the-less.

Here is my fun food car. Easy enough to do and perfect for a party.

Recipe

- Watermelon

- I used apple, peach, plums and blueberries (any round fruit works for wheels or cut from apple/pear etc. the windows can be cut from any larger fruit)

Method

1. Cut a chunk from the watermelon (roughly rectangular).

2. And then carve a front and back indent from the rectangle.

I made them slightly sloping (but then what do I know about cars ?!?!)

3. Before making the wheels from the cheeks of two plums.

4. I made the windscreen from peach flesh but later changed to apple.

8. I used the peach again for the side windows (which I later swapped for apple) and plum for the door outline and front grille.

12. But I realised that lighter windows would look better so swapped the peach for apple.
