Different types of fruits for the fruit salad

To start with, you should wash the watermelon to wipe out any dart or mud spot from the skin. Next you should use a soft and clean towel to pat dry the watermelon. Lightly rub the skin of the watermelon to bring out the original glaze of the skin.
In the next step, you should cut lengthwise to make only one thin slice consisting of only the skin part. This will actually help the watermelon to be stable on its base. After this, place the watermelon on its cut side over a flat surface.
Now take a sharp knife to make first the horizontal cut starting from the end to the middle point of the watermelon. Give another vertical cut from top to meet with the horizontal cut at the central point. Take away this cut portion of the fruit and keep aside.
Carefully hollow out the watermelon from inside and save this part for preparing the fruit salad. Also, put small V-cuts around the edge to give the carriage a better look.
Cut out a handle for the carriage, from the separated part of the fruit. Use only the skin part to do this after scraping off the fruity portion. Secure this handle with the main carriage with the help of the toothpicks.
Next you should cut out two same size slices from the orange to make the wheels of the carriage. Use toothpicks to fix these wheels to the main body.
With the rest of the fruits, prepare the fruit salad and then fill the hollow part of the watermelon with this fruit salad.
You can also feel free to decorate this watermelon carriage according to your desire. Just make sure that you use only fruits for decoration and nothing else.
