Different Procedures for Fruit Carvings

Fruit carving is an Asian art that is used by chefs around the world. In Thailand and Japan, artfully carved fruits and vegetables are part of a meal's presentation. Some fruit carving masters create designs that take several hours to complete. Any fruit that has a solid form can be carved into edible works of art.

Apple Leaves

Create apple leaves with red or green apples. Cut wedges into leaf shapes with a paring knife. Use the tip of the paring knife to carve out the veins of the leaf. Notch the edges to make it more leaf-like.

Watermelon Smiley Face

Create the quintessential hippie symbol--the simple smiley face--with a watermelon. Select a round melon, and cut off the end with a sharp knife. On the opposite end, cut just enough of the rind to give the melon a flat base on which to sit. Scoop out the watermelon flesh with a melon baller. Once the watermelon shell is empty, fill with melon balls.

Pineapple Butterflies

Cut the pineapple in half, lengthwise. Cut a V-shaped groove into the core. Remove the rind from the pineapple, leaving a half-circle with a groove on top. Use a knife to carve out grooves along the outer curve of the pineapple's flesh. Cut slices to make several little pineapple butterflies.
