How to make edible arrangements:
Tasty Daisy Fruit Bouquet.

Edible fruit arrangements have become very popular these days. There are not many instructions on how to make edible arrangements on the Internet. Below you will find directions for making a fruit bouquet.

Materials used in this edible fruit arrangement: pineapple, cantaloupe, grapes, strawberries, a head of lettuce, kale leaves, bamboo skewers, gumdrops, a pot, a flower shaped metal cookie cutter, a melon baller, and a knife.

Wash and dry all the fruits and tools well before making the edible bouquet.

Step 1. Choose a container that you would like to use for your fruit bouquet. The container used in this arrangement was bought at Wal-Mart. If you use a basket, put a plastic liner inside of it. Wash and dry the chosen container and liner before arranging fruits in it. Prepare the head of lettuce.

Step 3. Insert the kale leaves into the container around the lettuce. Cover the lettuce completely. The kale leaves will be held in place by bamboo skewers of fruit flowers inserted later.

Step 4. Make the pineapple daisies.

a) Slice a pineapple into 1/2 - 1" thick discs. I used 7 pineapple daisies for this fruit bouquet. The bigger the bouquet, the more fruit flowers you will need.

b) Take a pineapple disc, position a flower-shaped cookie cutter over the disc, and press down on the cookie cutter. Push the part inside the cookie cutter out. Make as many as you would want. Throw away the outer portion of the pineapple.

c) Take a cantaloupe, cut it in half and remove the seeds. Using a melon baller, cut balls from the cantaloupe. They can be totally round or a little flat on one side. Make as many melon balls as pineapple flowers.

d) Take a bamboo skewer and slide a gumdrop onto it. The gumdrop will prevent the pineapple flower from sliding down the skewer.

e) Pierce the sharp end of the skewer through the center of the pineapple flower. Then thread a cantaloupe ball onto the end of the skewer so that the skewer does not show. A pineapple daisy is ready.

Step 5. Arrange your edible flowers in the pot to achieve the desired look. Make the flower stems shorter by breaking the ends off or cutting the ends off with wire cutters as necessary.
