Prep
Cook
Serves 20people
Ingredients
1
large watermelon
assorted fruit such as melon balls berries and grapes
Directions
1.
To outline the shape of the whale place the watermelon on a flat surface, steam end toward you. The stem will be the nose. Make a pattern of a whale's tail. With a wooden skewer, outline the opening for the shell, then draw around the pattern of the tail
2.
To relieve the pressure inside the watermelon, use a sharp knife to cut an X through the top of the watermelon.
3.
To make the shell cut along the outline for the opening. Cut away the unwanted shell in pieces. Scoop out the watermelon fruit. Leaving the shell about 1 inch thick. Reserve the watermelon fruit to add to the other fruit in the whale
4.
To complete the whale outline the eyes and mouth with a wooden skewer. Cut out the eyes completely. Cut the mouth only halfway through the shell so the juices from the fruit will not run out. At this point the whale may be covered with plastic wrap and refrigerated overnight. Before serving the whale, make several holes to resemble spouting water. Fill the wale with melon balls or pieces, berries, grapes or other fruit.
