Turtle Fruit Platter

When I seen this beautiful Turtle Fruit Platter Photo shared on facebook, I just had to try, I shared it with the comment or not to myself   "Must try this with kids". A day or two later my sister posted pics of a her results of the turtle platter. Another couple of days latter, I finally got around to carving a watermelon fruit platter and shared the results of our turtle on facebook. It was fun but it did take a bit more time than I imagined. If we had a pumpkin carving knife, I am sure the results would of been better , smoother and quicker. But we used what we had on hand and still had a blast making something fun and a new dessert to look forward too after the watermelon was cleaned out by the kids. 

Here are a few photos of our version, next one will be better. Can not wait to try this at peak summer when fresh berries from the wild, garden and local markets are ready. But since we don't have fresh berries, frozen berries had to do. Try it out with your family, upcoming social gathering or work presentation. Have fun.
