Ingredients

  • 250g Strawberries
  • 1/4 Honeydew Melon
  • 1/4 Small Watermelon (seedless)
  • 1 tbsp Icing Sugar (for dusting)

Instructions

  • Trim the bases (stalks) of the strawberries to produce a flat bottom. Then cut each strawberry twice to give 3 slices. 
  • Cut the Honeydew Melon and Watermelon into slices (around 1/2-1cm thick). Lay flat and cut round disks using 3 varying sizes of round cookie cutters (see note 1).  Check the cookie cutter size next to each slice of strawberry to determine how many of each size you will need. This will ensure the trees will stack well. 
  • Assemble the trees and dust with icing sugar. 

Notes

You will require circle cookie cutters approx 2.5cm, 3cms and 3.5cm wide to make this recipe.
