I’ve always wanted to try doing this. I’ve eaten (and loved!) Edible Arrangements for a while. I think they’re a great gift to give but seriously, they cost SO much. Even a really small bouquet is above $50. I had a potluck party to attend today and on a whim buying fruit last night, I went ahead and bought my supplies to make this. It was made of pineapple, cantaloupe, grapes, and blueberries. I used a flower cookie cutter I had around from Easter, but it was plastic and took a bit of effort to get the flowers nice and even, so I think next time I’ll just buy a metal cutter for this. Surprisingly, the whole thing took much less time than I thought (an hour and a half, maybe two?) and came out cute for a first try. I think it would’ve been even better if I had used a floral foam for the arrangement, but I actually just used the top of the pineapple to stick the sticks in. Next try will hopefully be much more artfully arranged! And I think next time I’ll include chocolate dipped strawberries.
Some tips on making them:
- Melon ballers make perfect half spheres for the middles.
- Hold them to the middles to the pineapple flowers with toothpicks but cut off the sharp ends with scissors so no one pokes themselves
