Dear Mrs. Gill,
I am new to fruit carvings and beginning to fall in love with it. This baby carriage was my 2nd carving. Few months ago, I came cross to your website, and saw your lesson on how to make roses and leaves, so I “begged” my husband to buy me your DVD, thankfully he did.
You have mentioned that an ideal knife is the key to a good carving. Last week I bought me the Thai flexible blade. (By the way, you did an excellent job in sending that knife. It came Thursday and I needed it last Friday, Thank you!) And it does make a huge difference! I used my new knife to do the carvings on the flowers of the carriage. I was asked to do this carriage for a baby shower for yesterday. I wasn’t confident enough to do the roses for this one, so I made the flowers with cookie cutters and used your technique in high lightening the flowers and doing the leaves as well.
This is my first attempt to do this carriage with this design. …I love my new knife. Thank you for recommending it.

Watermelon Carriage Carved By Student/Customer Barbara Phelps
First let me say I am a huge fan and I have really enjoyed your videos. I have some carving experience so I am not exactly a beginner, but after watching the videos I realized just how much I still need to learn! Anyway, here is a watermelon baby buggy I carved for my neighbor and dear friend who is expecting her first grandchild. The melons are not in season so selection was very limited and they were quite expensive so I knew I had to “get it right”. Next time I would do things a little differently, I ran out of time to practice the technique I really wanted to use on the bonnet part of the carriage, but that’s the great thing about carving, so many options! Thank you for the videos and offering the tools for sale. The tools are better than anything I’ve ever used!
I cut watermelon hearts, kiwi hearts, flower shaped pineapple, chunks of honey do and cantaloupe (too tired to do anything fancy with those, it was 2:00 am!! 🙂 I carved it at my house and delivered it with the fruit packed separately. My other girlfriends couldn’t believe it …. reactions were “Amazing…love it” ; “that is a masterpiece… how many hours did it take” … “i thought it looked perfect” …. “you could start your own business in food carving” …. “you are too much”.
Deborah Cheeseman’s variation of the watermelon baby carriage idea.
Deborah Cheeseman is a professional caterer who was a student of most, if not all, of my video lessons. She now offers all kinds of carving displays as part of her catering service. Fortunately for us, she generously shares many of her photos with us and as a result, is featured in several of our past blog posts.
Don’t have time to carve the baby’s whole name? The baby’s initial can be just as effective and pretty.

Here is what Shirley said when she sent me her photo.
I definitely plan to order the tools. I made this for a baby shower this past weekend and sure could have used some better tools other than a knife to do it with.
