Our Own Edible Arrangement

I've always seen these edible arrangements that you can send to people for special occasions and always think, "I could do that!"  If you have never seen these amazing arrangements check out this link here!  We created our own edible arrangement and it is much harder than you might think.....I give the folks at a lot of credit!  I'm sure they have a lot of tools to work with that would make it a lot easier to make a more elaborate arrangement.  Ours turned out more like a kebab arrangement,  but still beautiful!

First, I gathered all the fruit pictured here and then washed and cut up the fruit.  I made flat slices of the melons to try cookie cutters on.

I saved some of the bottom of a pineapple for the base to poke everything into.

Cassie began by making cookie cutters slices of watermelon and cantaloupe.  This was a little tricky because the watermelon easily falls apart!

Then C began putting the variety of fruit items on kebab sticks!

As you can see C mostly loved the strawberries! Mom did a few too!

Here is C with our finished arrangement! Not bad for amateurs! 

What kinds of edible art have you made? Please share!
