How to Make a Watermelon Brain!

Okay, I saw this first on twitter, here. Warning: it's cool, but kinda icky. First, get a watermelon.

Cut in half lengthwise.

Shave off the green skin, leaving the white part.

Start cutting with a sharp knife.

Make brain-like folds as shown.

Mine looks kind of gruesome because the white rind was so thin that the red part showed through, making it look a bit too "bloody" for me.

But I guess it does look kind of brainlike. It creeped out my family! But they still ate it. And you know me, I had to make a mini:

Out of a radish. ^_^

Happy Halloween!!!


  1. That is Halloween cool! You are so creative too. :D

  2. Thanks a Lot Sheri. I had all the ingredients for my little get together tonight all ready to go. Now I have to go back to the store and get a Watermelon so I can try this one. I think the Kids will LOVE it. It's really pretty "cute" because the colors are so soft. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Ha ha Karina!
    Yeah, try it! Wanna see yours!

  4. Very creative Sheri ... the mini one on radish is great idea :o)

  5. wow, well done on the brains, thot the radishes were real ones for a moment!

  6. Thanks much, Lia,javapot and Michelle! Maybe a bit too real... :)

  7. LOL. I'd seen this done with watermelon before, but the mini radish brain is just adorable...well, if brains can be adorable!?!

  8. ha! I don't know.. but at least not as gruesome!
    Thanks veganf :)

  9. This is so cool! It freak me out too! :D

  10. KidsDreamWork,
    Me too! I haven't seen this since last year and it's still making my skin crawl.
