Do not click away from this recipe: it is not as complicated as it looks, yet the results are obviously impressive, and with a bit of patience, a sharp paring knife, and a melon baller, you too can create this adorable race car!
Those precious eyeballs are made up of shortening, candy coating, and sandwich cookies; however, you can buy candy eyes as well if you don’t feel like making them. The rest is a bunch of delicious fruit: watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew melon, lemons, and limes to be exact. Follow the prep directions exactly for the best results; for example, if you go ahead and attach the lemon / lime wheels before you start carving, you’re going to be in for a frustrating experience . If you aren’t adept at using a knife, outline the carvings based on the recipe instructions with a food safe marker before you get started. Then, wait for the compliments to roll in!
