Fun Watermelon Sunrise

Watermelon Sunrise

I had a whole watermelon and couldn’t decide what to do with it. I asked Max for suggestions and he said “sunrise”. Of course, why didn’t I think of that?

So here is Max’s fun food idea for a bright red piece of watermelon and some fresh pineapple. It’s a great share plate or party centrepiece.

Recipe

– Piece of watermelon. I made a large sun from half a small watermelon but you could do a mini version from a cut piece.

– Some fresh pineapple (or apple/pear/melon)

– Mandarins – for the eyes (or orange/pineapple etc.)

– Oranges – for clouds (substitute as necessary)

– Raisins – for eyeballs

Method

1. Cut the watermelon. I cheated and used a bowl as a mold as I am not quite mad enough to be able to cut perfect circles!

8. I thought maybe the sun needed a nose. Or maybe not?
