Fruit display for 10 year old girl's birthday party

Fruit display with a carved watermelon and small parrots carved out of daikon.

This display was sent to a birthday party of 10 year old girl. Her mother asked me for a pair of vegetable parrot sculptures to garnish the watermelon. I think the girl keeps some real birds at home.

Decoration:
Watermelon 2.5 kg with 'Happy Birthday' inscription (in Russian)
Flowers carved out of daikon, green bell pepper and carrot
Parrots out of daikon

Fruit plate:
black and green grape,
Minneola madarines,
oranges,
nectarine,
Bird cherry,
kiwi,
red apple

Watermelon Carving, Ballroom Dance Theme

>>  5/19/2013

The dancing pair design is carved in 3.5 kg watermelon. Did it today for a ballroom dance competition.

The watermelon was small, so I was very concentrated on carving the details of the design.
 I managed to do that with a help of my thai knife which has a thin blade with a sharp tip.

Cute Food Ideas with Flower Cookie Cutters

>>  5/10/2013

Before Easter I went to exhibition with some carving and cute food ideas. 

At the demonstration I showed my new cookie cutters in a shape of flowers. I love to use them for baking. On the picture you see sweet 'Flowers' tarts, 'Pyramid' sandwiches and mini pizza (tomato, salami and hot pepper). The Lemon Chicken was also a part of my class, it's very easy and quick garnish.

Russian Easter, Kulich and Samovar

>>  5/07/2013

5th of May we celebrated Easter in Russia. 

I had few ideas of Easter table decoration and stopped at traditional one, with no extraordinary carving :) 
I baked Kulich, a russian easter cake (to my surprise I succeeded,  it was very tasty, believe me!). To add "more traditions" to the party I unpacked my grandma's samovar. 


When I was a child, every summer I had been sent to my grandmother for summer holidays. Some things I loved about her house were her cute dog and a samovar (we had no pets and no samovar in our city appartment). 
We still keep that samovar stored in a board, almost forgotten. So I found it, cleaned and set on the table.

Easter baking (Kulich) and samovar

Recipe of Kulich was taken from "Recipes of Russian Cuisine" blog by Angelica, a Russian lady blogging from Italy. I've never myself baked Kulich before. This recipe is perfect, I made it easily. The recipe ingredients were enough for 3 cakes. 
We left one cake at home, the others were for gifts.

Russian Easter treats and games are Kulich and eggs exchange, eggs fights, making silly faces in the samovar (not sure it's a tradition :)) we did it when were children).
