Fruit decorating is often used to dress up fruit platters for parties and other special events. You can use basic cookie cutters to cut your fruit shapes and design your platter. Always use fresh fruit and only select fruit that you can cut in large slabs, such as pineapple, honeydew melon and watermelons.
Flowers and Hearts
Buy flower and heart cookie cutters in various sizes. Cut out square slabs of fruit and press your cookie cutters onto the fruits to mould them into shape. Arrange your flowers and hearts in a pattern on a tray. This means every other piece is a flower or a heart. Then place chocolate-dipped strawberries in between the each groove of the moulded fruit. Wrap your fruit tray tightly in plastic cling wrap if you plan on transporting the tray. Use ice packs or a cooler to keep the tray cold and the chocolate from melting.
Teddy Bears and Hearts
Buy several sizes of teddy bear and heart-shaped cookie cutters to mould your fruit pieces into shape. Place the smaller teddy bears directly on top of the larger teddy bears and then place one heart next to each teddy bear to create a pattern. Place one large teddy bear shape in the middle of the tray.
A basic shape fruit tray works well for a toddler turning 3 because he's learning about different shapes. Buy cookie cutters in basic shapes. Cut your fruit pieces into various shapes, such as circles, squares, ovals, rectangles and octagons. Place the cut pieces of fruit on the tray in a random order.
