How to Make a Watermelon Baby Carriage
If you're looking for baby shower food ideas, this watermelon baby carriage makes a fun edible centerpiece and is easy to make!
Author: Katherine Martinelli
Recipe Type: Dessert, Centerpiece
Yield: 8 to 10 servings
- 1 watermelon
- 4 orange slices
- Cut a very thin slice from the widest, ugliest part of the watermelon so it sits flat on the table.
- Using a large, sharp knife cut out one quarter of the watermelon (slice down halfway through and across halfway through, and remove the wedge). You can slice the watermelon from the removed wedge to include in the fruit salad later.
- Using a metal spoon, scoop the watermelon flesh out into a large bowl. Reserve for another use (I made watermelon-lime aqua frescas). It should pretty much look like a baby carriage at this point.
- For some extra decoration, cut out little triangles with a paring knife in the top edge of the watermelon carriage to create a zig-zag trim.
- Attach the watermelon slices with toothpicks to make wheels.
- You can carve a stroller handle from the removed watermelon wedge. Scrape away the watermelon flesh and cut the wedge in half. Trim the wedge lengthwise a bit, then carefully cut out a rectangular opening by the top. Insert it into front of the baby carriage so it sticks out slightly.
- Spoon your favorite fruit salad into the baby carriage and serve.
