Looking for a fun way to serve a fruit platter? Don’t miss this great idea for a Funny Bunny Fruit Platter, perfect for any fruit and can be served year round!
I love to serve this funny bunny fruit platter for Easter brunch, but truthfully you could serve year round whenever there are get togethers involving kids. This one is super fun to put together and you could swap whatever fruits you have on hand. You could even do honeydew instead of cantaloupe for the bunny.
Funny Bunny Fruit Platter Assembly
To save time and do some prep ahead, you can cut up the melon and wash the other fruits (not raspberries, which should be washed right before serving) the night before.
Firstly, start by prepping the fruit. Also, be sure to assemble the fruit on the platter you want to showcase it on. Here I used a round white platter similar to this Mikasa French Countryside Round Serving Platter.
Cut the melon in half and scoop out the seeds and junk in the inside. Place one half of the melon to make the “bunny head” in the middle of the platter. With the other half, cut out the ears for the bunny and lay those on the platter. You can then cube or use a melon baller to cut the remainder of the melon.
Secondly, rinse and arrange the berries. Slice a strawberry to place on the cheeks of the bunny, and use two blueberries secured with toothpick for the eyes. Save a strawberry top for the whiskers, slice of melon for the mouth, and raspberry for the nose. Sprinkle the remaining berries around the bunny’s face.
Lastly, for the orange flowers, slice the mandarins in to six pieces, being careful not to cut all the way through. Top with a berry for a pretty flower effect.
You could even let the kids help on arranging this platter. Make sure your fruit is delicious and ripe before serving, and let the kids chop or even ball the melon. Have fun with this one!
Funny Bunny Fruit Platter
- 1 cantaloupe
- 5 oranges
- 1 pint raspberries
- 2 cups sliced strawberries, save a leafy top for the bunny whiskers
- 2 cups grapes
- 1. Slice the cantaloupe in half and remove the seeds. Save one half of the cantaloupe for the bunny’s face. Cut 2 lengthwise slices from the other half of the cantaloupe for the bunny’s ears. Cube or ball the reminder of the cantaloupe for the platter. 2. Make three long slices through the top of the orange, being careful not to cut all the way through the orange. Place a raspberry in the middle of the orange opening. 3. Wash and cut the remainder of the fruits. Arrange the bunny on the platter using toothpicks to spear the fruits onto the bunny’s face if necessary. Use blueberries for the bunny’s eyes, a raspberry for the nose, strawberry tops for the whiskers, and a sliver of melon for the mouth. Surround the platter with the rest of the fruit and arrange the oranges on the outside of the platter.
For a kid-friendly breakfast, serve this Funny Bunny Fruit Platter with my Creme Brûlée French Toast… the kids (and adults) will love it!
