Ingredients

    Preparation

    Cut the honeydew melon and cantaloupe in half. Use the melon baller to scoop out as much of each fruit as you can. Set aside the melon balls
    Using a sharp kitchen knife, create a flat surface by carefully cutting a quarter inch wide sliver off of the length of the watermelon, being careful not to cut too deep into the flesh of the melon

    Lay the watermelon on the flat side, and then using the food marker, draw a “D” shape, which will serve as the carriage opening. Make sure the flat part of the “D” starts 4-5 inches from the tip of the melon and the belly extends to the bottom
    Next, using the long V-shaped knife, insert the entire length of the knife into the watermelon, along the “D” and cut out the shape. Carefully pull the top of the “D” off of the watermelon. This is the start of your baby carriage

    Using the melon baller, start scooping out the flesh of the watermelon. The more flesh you scoop out, the more room you will have to add your other assorted fruits
    Insert two toothpicks into the grapefruit, about 1⁄2-inch apart from each other—this will be where the “eyes” of the fruit will be. Cut 1 grape in half and place each half on the exposed toothpick. Using the kitchen knife, make a small incision where you would like the “mouth” to be. Push the pacifier into the opening. Place the grapefruit at the head of the carriage (underneath the flat part of the “D” shape)

    Cut the orange into 4 equal round slices. Insert a toothpick through each slice with the flesh facing outwards. Place one orange slice at each of the 4 “corners” of the carriage. Hold the wheel in place by adding a green grape “hub cap,” to the end of each exposed toothpick

    Start filling your baby carriage with the assorted berries, purple grapes, and balled melons
