Fruit Flower Arrangement

Elizabeth Lancaster


My youngest son Bobby loves fruit, and has always wanted an Edible Arrangement, but those things cost a TON of money and frankly I have a hard time spending $100 of fruit for one day. For Easter I made him his own Edible Arrangement that he could enjoy all day long for less than $20. And it was from me, not some company! It's not perfect but it's not bad for my first attempt! I hope you will give this a try at your next party,picnic,baby/wedding shower. Enjoy!

How to Make Fruit Flower Arrangement


  1. Wash and Dry fruit.

    Choose from a Vase,box or a basket to place your arrangement in.
    Cut Cabbage head to fit your Vase,Box or Basket.
  2. slice watermelon no thicker than the width of your cookie cutters. and place on a cookie sheet to rest.Slice pineapples and repeat the same step(Pineapples make the best flowers, since they have a hard center)
  3. Cantaloupe, Slice and using a melon baller, scrap out enough balls out for the center of the flowers. and using tooth picks, secure them to the back of the pineapple and watermelon flowers.
    Once you have all the balls cut out for your flower centers, slice the rest of the cantaloupe into triangle shapes for the filler's.
  4. melt your Almond Bark in the oven according to package directions, and set aside,(dry pineapples with paper towels to remove access water and juice) Dip your selected fruit into the Almond Bark and set on wax paper til cool, (it takes forever,do these first) If adding sprinkles, add them while the fruit is laying flat on a surface and while the chocolate is still warm.
  5. While Chocolates are drying, Strand your Grapes, Apples(slice into pieces,removing seeds and core) ,Strawberries and Kiwi's on skewers. Set aside.
  6. Squeeze Lemon juice and using a basting brush, bast the apples with Lemon Juice to prevent them from browning.
  7. Start in the middle of your Bouquet, adding the heaviest fruits and work your way all around placing the fruit in a manner as if you were arranging flowers, cut your skewers down if need to make the Bouquet seem full. place the Chocolate fruits last so you don't chip off the Chocolate. I added, Easter Peeps since it was Easter.

    Add a Ribbon and or a card and Enjoy!!!
