Fruity business

I thought I would put a new twist on an old favourite; the fruit platter. Now I made this one up to resemble Hedwig the owl from Harry Potter. Yes I know that Hedwig is white while this fruit owl is all the colours of the rainbow but Im not sure how tasty a fruit owl dusted in icing sugar would taste. This Hedwig fruit platter was for a Harry Potter movie night.

Here’s how to make your own

Things needed

  • pineapple (body)
  • grapefruit(head)
  • lemon (a piece for the beak)
  • grapes (eyes)
  • extra fruit to snack on
  • wooden skewers & toothpicks

1.Cut a quarter off the top of the pineapple

2. Cut the quarter pineapple piece into 2 (straight in half). This will form the wings. Then cut a bamboo skewer into 2 & stake each wing into each side of the pineapple (which is turned upside down on a flat surface).

3. Skewer the grapefruit into the top of the pineapple to form the head.

4. Next take a grape & cut down the centre. Then toothpick these eyes onto the face

Hmmm Hedwig is looking more porcupine at the moment…

5.For the beak, cut a piece of the lemon. Stick a toothpick into the grapefruit then slip the lemon beak onto it.

6. Trim all the sticks poking out of Hedwig. (I added a piece of lettuce for the feather head). Cut all fruit for decoration & scatter around Hedwig.

Expecto patronum!!!

These fruit animals are by the talented staff of Novotel Benoa, Bali.

Healthy eating never looked so good, time to stock up on the fruit & get creative!
