Found a really cool idea on Pinterest for a fruit salad baby bassinet.  It even came with photos and instructions so I thought I would share it with you.

For this you will need the following:

  • Large pan or serving tray
  • 1 Watermelon
  • 1 Cantaloupe
  • Mixed fruit (grapes, strawberries)
  • A box of toothpicks
  • (Optionally) an orange or grapefruit
  • A pacifier

By studying the picture you can pretty much see how it is made.  But here is a summary:

  1. Carve out the watermelon.  About 3/4th of the watermelon shell should be intact to form the bassinet.
  2. Cut and round the cantaloupe to form the baby’s head
  3. Toothpick 2 grapes to the baby’s head to create the eyes.
  4. Cut a little hole and insert the pacifier as the mouth.
  5. Attach the head to the inside of the watermelon.
  6. Fill the remaining bassinet with the mixed fruit.

That’s it!  Your edible creation will be the hit of the party.
