Fun Heart Balloon

Heart Balloon

My lovely neighbour gifted me a sack of tiny, freshly picked plums. I kept staring at them shining like multi-coloured marbles as they were at different stages of ripening. Once I picked out the ripest and cut them in half I realised they would make the perfect heart.

This fun food Heart Balloon could just as easily be made with grapes!
