Birds In Love--Entry For A Contest

Kanuvindaina Vantinti Srujanathmakatha' was the contest in an Orkut community in month of February,its a fruit and vegetable carving contest,as its february,love is in air,this made me choose the Valentine Theme for this contest.I made two birds with pineapple and set my entry to the contest.


I got 2nd place in the contest and happy for it.I got this idea by watching few online carving videos and images.


I thought it would be too hard to finish and present but my hubby made my work easy :) The toughest part of this carving is scooping the pineapple,he did that for me.Thanks U Dear.

I'm sending this to Create & Carve event by Nayna Kanabar at simply.food, this month's event is being hosted by Helen .


Fruits & Vegetables Used:
Pineapple-2 no
Yellow Squash-2 no
Grapes:1 cup (cut in half)
Carrot: 1 no
Cloves: 4 no


Procedure:
1.Cut the pineapple into half leaving the leaves and base intact and scoop out the fruit from the pineapple base and cut the squash in an angle so that it sits perfect on the base and secure it onto the pineapple base with tooth picks.Cut the stem portion of the squash.
2.Make small slits on the squash and pierce the cloves to make the eyes.Now trim the carrot sharp in the shape of nose and put it in the stem place.Now make a thin slit on the squash near the head vertically and put thinly cut carrot pieces to look like the birds crown.
3.Now arrange the cut grapes on the pineapple base to make it more attractive.


I served Ice-cream in it.
