The hedgehog and the pig

by admin on October 13, 2011

I did a post a couple of weeks ago about watermelon carvings and decided that as I wasn’t making Miss C’s birthday cake, my contribution to her party was to attempt a watermelon hedgehog and a watermelon pig myself.

Look at these masterpieces.










Now compare them to the professional ones

What do y0u think?

Whilst it was fun doing them, it took longer than I expected, was very messy and I NEVER want to see another watermelon.

Kids Party Food: Whooping watermelons

It’s Miss C’s birthday party on Saturday and she’s having a BBQ/Pool party (I wish I could have had a pool party when I was young). Kids love watermelon and it’s so cheap, here in Singapore, so I wanted to make a Watermelon Pig. I came  upon this site dedicated to the Watermelon – – the National Watermelon Promotion Board in Florida.

Who’d ever have thought you could create so many amazing designs from the simple watermelon. Here are some of my favourites.
