Melon Flower and Peacock Bouqu by ~Chuncarv is a delicate and intricate carving, it's impressive how the watermelon was carved to achieve different shades. ( Suggested by maytel and Featured by Talty )

to me being a cake designer like this is a beautiful and yet tragic job, you put your heart and soul into making these things of fragile beauty only for them to be hacked up and eaten...

Non, I'm saying if you made more fruit critters and placed them all together, it would make for a neat background. =D
