How to Make a Watermelon Boat
A watermelon boat is a fun and creative way to serve fruit at a summer gathering. It’s also an easy project that requires minimal supplies and time. With just a few simple steps, you can create a unique centerpiece for your next party.
Step 1: Gather Supplies
To make a watermelon boat, you will need the following supplies: one large watermelon, a sharp knife, a spoon or melon baller, and any additional decorations such as toothpicks, skewers, or edible flowers.
Step 2: Cut the Watermelon
Using the sharp knife, cut off the top of the watermelon. This will be the lid of your boat. Then, cut off the bottom of the watermelon so it sits flat on the surface. Finally, cut out two small triangular pieces from each side of the watermelon to create the sides of your boat.
Step 3: Scoop Out the Flesh
Using either a spoon or melon baller, scoop out all of the flesh from inside of the watermelon. Be sure to leave enough flesh around the edges so that your boat does not collapse when filled with fruit.
Step 4: Fill with Fruit
Fill your boat with whatever type of fruit you desire. Berries, melons, grapes, and oranges are all great options. You can also add other decorations such as toothpicks or skewers with flags on them for added flair.
Step 5: Serve and Enjoy!
Your watermelon boat is now ready to be served! Place it in the center of your table and let everyone enjoy its delicious contents. Your guests will be impressed by your creativity and skill in making this unique dish.
