Fun Fruit Bouquet

Fruit Bouquet

It’s tradition in my boy’s school for the parent’s from the penultimate year to make desserts for the Year 6 Graduation ceremony. I volunteered to make fruit skewers but wanted to do something a lot more special for the night. From this the fun food Fruit Flower Bouquet was born.

It looks really complex but is actually simple. It took me about 1 ½ hours to put it together although I’m sure I could do it more quickly next time!

Recipe

– Flower pot

– Cabbage (I used this for ballast and to stick the skewers into. Potato/florists foam/apple would work too)
