Fancy Melon Basket

Fancy Melon BasketA few years ago I bought a set of carving razor blades at Hobby Lobby.  I use them to carve melons and pumpkins.  This image is a melon basket I did for my niece-in-law Kamie’s high school graduation.

Ingredients

Watermelon
Cantaloupe
Honey Dew Melon
Grapes
Thai Basil

The hardest part is carving the designs into the melon.  I used a melon baller on all the melons.  I mixed in the grape with some Thai Basil to give it a clean and different taste.  I then added some more Thai Basil as a decoration.  The purple flowers give it a rich look.
