Isn't my carved cantelope fish just the cutest? I have to admit, when we were about to carve this little fish in my fruit carving class a few weeks ago I was really quite sceptical, but once I saw the results, well, I just want to make some more! My son's bar mitzvah is just a week after Rosh HaShana, and he was born 2 days before the New Year, so I'm hoping he'll agree to some carved fish on the buffet table! The only thing is that I'll have to carve my fish from pumpkin, as there won't be any centelope in sight......could be great too, and I'm even going to experiment carving the fish a few weeks ahead and freezing them! Really hoping that works as I certainly can't see myself carving a bunch of fish and trying to get everything else done, well on teh other hand that would be just like me, but I'm trying to change my sleep deprived ways. Okay, enough babble, on to the instructions for carving this little fish!
