Heartfelt Mother’s Day Fruit Carvings

watermelon cake byRoseWe hope everyone had a lovely Mother’s Day weekend and we want to share a few photos that we received of some beautiful Mother’s Day Fruit Carvings.

Rose Flores, who began her fruit carving journey with Vegetable Fruit Carving over two years ago, sent me a photo collage of her recent watermelon cake carvings for both Easter and Mother’s Day. Perhaps even more amazing than her carvings is the story behind them. Rose was admitted to the hospital in February with what she thought was pneumonia. Instead, she discovered that she had several pulmonary embolisms, which are blood clots on the lungs, and was placed on blood thinners.

Rose explained,

I was advised not to do any carvings WITHOUT special cut resistant leather gloves with a plastic glove on top of that. It has been interesting working with these gloves because they are very restricting, but I have done some experimenting and did a watermelon carving for Easter and for Mother’s Day”

Isn’t it incredible that she could create such lovely carvings while having her hands restricted with two sets of gloves?

Rose learned the watermelon cake from my lessons, Watermelon Cakes #1 and #2 and added her own artistic touches. She has done an exquisite job, hasn’t she? You can learn to carve watermelon roses in my lessons, Carving Watermelons – Roses, Buds and Leaves.

Below you can see the lovely carvings and food art that Rose made for Easter wearing her double layer of gloves.

Rose’s bunny bread is really a sweet idea, too. Isn’t it?

You can learn how to carve watermelons, like Rose Flores’ Easter watermelon above, in my lessons: Carving Letters and Words #1 and #2.

Abby Viera also shared some photos of her Mother’s Day watermelon carvings.

    I can see the extraordinary amount of work that went into the food art. I would love to be able to carve like this.
