There’s no doubt about it: this recipe takes patience, a sharp knife, and probably a fair amount of practice. However, once you have it mastered, you won’t be disappointed that you tried!
- Slice off the very bottom end of one mini-watermelon to create a sturdy base. Outline the front part of the owl on the front of the watermelon with a food-safe marker. Carve the face of the owl, and carve the body based on your outline, leaving enough white for definition. Create small hatch marks all along the body portion.
- Outline the feather locations on either side of the body, and then cut small wedges of rind out. Attach blueberries and orange peels to the face for the eyes and a carrot nose. Use tooth picks to attach.
- Slice the bottom off of one green apple to create a base. Carefully carve it into the shape of a penguin, working your way from the top down. Slice a ring out of a plum and place this on top of the penguins head. Cut a red apple in half, and place this cut side down on top, securing with toothpicks if necessary.
- Add blueberries, red apple rounds, and a carrot to complete the bow tie, eyes and nose.
