melon madness


On day 5 of the 7 day journey they had a 'dessert extravaganza' and this extravaganza involved some mighty fancy melon work and some cool flowers made from beets, carrots and radish.



I thought it would be fun for you to have a look at the next thing I will be attempting, yup I am probably going to start wasting melons because I want to be able to create these little disposable works of art.












Pretty stuff is cool! I get so tired of hearing how 'if it tastes good and smells good then thats all that matters' - I wont eat your ugly food - sorry, smell good or not I wont touch it - you can have it, but if it smells good and looks good I am sold all the way. I read blogs with food that keep on saying that looks dont count - imagine a lame, busted melon carving - sad huh?



Take a little extra time and give yourself some eye candy. Remember, presentation is everything!

Oh my gosh! Those are way better than sandcastles!

Jenn said...

I'm always amazed my work that can come out from melon and fruit carvings. I'll be patiently waiting to see that you come up with. ;-)

I love these! Look forward to seeing what you craft :-)

And agreed about presentation. Some of my food looks ugly when it i done and that always saddens me.

Melody said...

Wow! The talent and patience that some people have. It takes playing with your food to a whole new level!

Juliana said...

Lovely...thank you so much for sharing...

Harmony said...

I am SO with you on loving pretty food...which is one of the reasons why I am drawn to your blog. If anyone could do the melon art it's you Dog..so let's see it.

How fun! I want to try!

Anette said...

Melon magic I'd say! That looks beautiful! Was anyone allowed to eat them finally, or were they just for the looks?

Very cool stuff! I'm not that religious, but I don't know about Jesus as a melon ball though.....Probably allowable at a Sunday brunch.....

Reeni♥ said...

These are so cool!

Now THAT takes talent!! Some of them are so intricate...simply gorgeous. It would definitely be fun to experiment with melons and see what you could come up with (I love the flower and the Native American face). I actually think the beet flowers are my favorite of the whole lot, though.

Wow - those melon "flowers" are gorgeous, not to mention the portraits. And, I wish I could slice beets that thin.

Marjie said...

Some of those are awfully pretty! I like watermelon any way I can get it; I think it's pretty sitting on my chopping board!

Pooja said...

Those are just awesome! Loved all the carvings!

My Carolina Kitchen said...

Your melon creations are terrific. You're quite the artist. Very impressive.

I recently returned from a Royal Carabbian cruise. In additiom to the beautiful melon carvings we were treated to equally beautiful ice carvings.

In my dreams!!

The Duo Dishes said...

Suhweet melon carvings! ha!

The Cooking Photographer said...

I want to take a cruise now just to go see the carvings! Those are so neat!

Presentation means a great deal, especially for me. I am so visually oriented that I even think in pictures.

Tangled Noodle said...

I thought the bouquet was impressive, then I started scrolling down. These are amazing and strangely enough, they actually make me want to dig right into the melons!

Prathibha said...
