How to Carve a Watermelon Brain

I never get tired of playing with my food, especially around halloween when I get to use my carving tools to decorate and make ghoulish designs.

What you will need:
1 small seedless watermelon
Vegetable peeler
Paring knife
Large knife
Skewer or Toothpick
*or if you have a pumpkin carving kit, that works great also


  • Slice watermelon in half length and peel 
  • Score brainy folds into the white flesh.
  • With a sharp paring knife, carve channels out of melon to resemble cortical folds
  • Chill and Serve 

seedless watermelon

cut the watermelon in half lengthwise and trim the edge

I found this nifty peeler at the store, it was $2.99
so of course me being skeptic, I thought it wasn't going to work, well if proved me wrong it

the peeler is attached to the finger,
 then gradually move your hand from front to back over the surface of the watermelon until its all peeled

I went alittle design crazy, now i have a huge Sinus Gap :)

I score the lines with a knife and use a tooth pick to make the gaps clean

I dropped my phone and I think the camera got loose because
this is the effect I got  for about 30 minutes, I couldn't change it from this setting
