Today, I’d like to share with you some photos of cute melon bunny and ice bunny carvings sent it to me recently by professional and amateur fruit carvers and ice carvers.

Melon bunny and ice bunny carvings can be seen at large buffets in famous resorts like Disneyland at any time of the year. Check out these melon bunny and ice bunny carvings by professional artists.

Isn’t it charming? It just feels like Spring time with all the lovely flower carvings.

Greg sent this message along with his melon bunny photo:

Thanks to Nita Gill for sharing those Easter designs. And special thanks to the carver who shared with Nita. I needed a design for Easter for a client and during a super busy week I had no time to come up with something on my own. Thanks for sharing Nita.”

Greg was referring to Jean Geraldo Silva, who is another professional fruit carver. Check out Jean’s melon bunny photo below:

I love how readers can share and get new ideas from seeing the photos on the blog!

This next carving of an ice bunny was done by professional carver, David Utley for Bally’s Casino Hotel:

David got his ice bunny basket idea from an ice carving website. I really like the detailed designs that David carved on the body of ice bunny to make it look soft and cuddly – even though it’s freezing cold!

David is such a talented ice carver. Check out a few of his other creations:

Here’s a unique bunny display by professional carver and painter, Ruben Olano, who works for Disneyland hotels:

This was at an Easter buffet in Disneyland hotels. The bunny is made of banana squash, the flower bases are also banana squash….this is what I used to do in the center of the Grand Ballroom so the guest can watch as part of the Show…”

 This is a wonderful creation, especially since it was only her second attempt at fruit carving! Rose sent along this message with her photo:

I enjoyed talking to you yesterday afternoon and appreciate your taking the time to answer my questions about the correct knives to use in the watermelon carvings. I am a beginner at fruit and vegetable carvings, but love to be creative in my family holiday platters….I am attaching two pictures of a fruit platter I prepared for Easter this year (2012) which included a carved watermelon bowl. Thanks again…and I am looking forward to getting started on the watermelon roses and buds carvings from your video”.

Thanks for sharing your photos, Rose.

If you’ve been wanting to try fruit and vegetable carving but have said to yourself, “this looks way to hard!”, just know that if you are willing to learn, you can make beautiful carvings even if you are a beginner!
