I remember going to the candy show a few years ago and one of the booths had a Watermelon Carver there. He was making the most interesting and beautiful flowers carved from watermelon. I have to admit, I did stay at that booth a little longer than normal, but I have no idea what candy the booth was actually promoting.
Since then, I have been utterly in awe of some of the watermelon carvings that I have seen around the web. With Mini Me's birthday just around the corner, I wish that I had the skills to try some of these amazing projects.
