One of the first things I think of when I think of summer time is fruit salad.  The light and sweet tastes of ripe fruit says summer time like nothing else to me.  To stick with Joe’s Sports Graduation Cake, which included a baseball and basketball I carved a watermelon for the very first time into a Baseball Mitt Fruit Salad Bowl!

  • Laurie Matthews

    Thanks for the great idea! I made this today to take to my son’s team party to celebrate the end of his All Star season. It turned out really well. I added a little different webbing by scoring up and down, about four lines each way, and then scraping the outside dark green off in small squares every other square, like a small checkerboard.
