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.
