This Halloween decorate your Monster Mash with a Frankenstein Watermelon Carving. Put a light in it, or use it to serve a healthy fruit salad dessert.
Watermelon Carving Tips
- The whole watermelon should be at room temperate when you carve to make cutting and slicing easier. Then chill the watermelon after cutting and before serving.
- Cut a small, thin, flat piece from the bottom of the watermelon before carving. This will provide a flat base, making the watermelon more stable when carving.
- Draw the design on the watermelon rind with a fine/medium point waterproof marker or a sharp pencil before you cut.
- Use a sharp knife with a pointed tip – the sharper the knife, the easier and cleaner the cuts will be.
(If you don’t have a melon baller, you may be interested in a 4 piece melon baller and carving knife set* from Amazon.)
