Lit watermelon lanterns

    Newer Older

    The Mandarin Buffet Restaurant sponsored this event. They had one of their chefs carve out these lanterns from watermelons, it took him an hour to do each one. We walked away before he demonstrated how to carve different figures from vegetables and fruits.

    Note how strong the lid had to be in order to hold up the entire lantern. I thought these were very intricately made and pretty. Someone from the audience remarked that he would win hands down in a pumpkin carving contest.
