1/4Small Watermelon (seedless)
1tbspIcing Sugar (for dusting)
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.
You will require circle cookie cutters approx 2.5cm, 3cms and 3.5cm wide to make this recipe. Nutritional information is a very ROUGH guide only, calculated using an online calculator. Facts will differ depending on the size of strawberries and amount of melon used.
