Birthday Platter

Well today is Roy’s birthday so I have made him a special platter in celebration. We won’t discuss how old he is but suffice it to say much older than me!!

Birthday Platter Fruit


Use whatever fruits you have on hand. I used:

– Watermelon (coloured with frozen raspberries)

– Kiwi fruit

– Pineapple

– Grapes

– Orange

– Mint leaves for decoration


1. Cut the numbers from the fruit. I used cookie cutters and watermelon.

Birthday Platter - 1 numbers (1 of 1)

2. Then surround with a contrasting colour. I used Kiwi fruit.

Birthday Platter - 2 kiwi (1 of 1)

3. Before adding some pineapple cut into pieces.

Birthday Platter - 3 pineapple (1 of 1)

4. And some grapes with the tips removed so they don’t roll!

Birthday Platter - 4 grapes (1 of 1)

I realised the late season watermelon was very pale so used frozen raspberries to darken the colour.

5. Add a few mint leaves for décor and we’re ready to stick the candles in.
