BBQ Bash Edible Centerpieces

Planning on holding a BBQ Bash or a Party? Looking to Spruce up your Celebration table? First, make sure that your watermelon is at room temperature. It will be much easier for you to carve the melon and it won’t “sweat”, which often will cause your design to run. Secondly, for easier carving, make a thin slice along the bottom of the melon to provide a stable, non-moving base.

Next, Choose the pattern that you’d like to carve. Carefully tape the pattern to your watermelon, using a toothpick or small pointed object carefully poke holes along your pattern lines indicating the areas you will carve out. (Just as you would a Pumpkin Carving Template.)

Once you have added your pattern to your watermelon, carefully cut out the largest piece that is to be removed. Using a melon-baller or spoon, scoop out your melon, saving it in a bowl.

When you’re carving is ready, you can refill your watermelon later with an assortment of fruit chunks or fruit salad. For a little extra color include some fresh raspberries, blackberries or blueberries.

  2. I don’t know why I never thought of doing this with a watermelon before, but I’m so glad I found this! How creative! I love the beach party one.

    I’d like to make many of these! Is there any way to make these last a bit longer? I’m not sure, but it seems as though they would be much like pumpkins in their longevity.

    I’m always disappointed by how quickly our pumpkins start to “cave” after they’ve been carved. I have been told to soak them in water from time to time, but I’ve not tried that yet. Would that work with watermelons as well?

    I’m not sure if it works on pumpkins or not, but I’d like to see. Great project!
