Edible flower arrangement

We were having a work celebration for hitting budget this past Friday and I was trying to figure out somehing to bring for my boss and his wife. They just had a baby a few weeks ago and so I was thinking of a "congratulations on the baby, thank you for having me in your home" sort of gift. So I figured I would make this edible arrangement that my mom sent me a link to last week. I made a Christmas tree edible arrangement in December and this was so easy compared to that. I thought this one was a lot more fun to make too. When I gave it to my boss he didn't even know I made it. He thought I bought it. Then, one of my co-workers asked if I had made it and when I said yes. My boss looked at me shocked, "You did?" That sure made me feel good. Yes, as a matter of fact I did make that professional looking edible arrangement. :)

Here is the link to the tutorial Edible crafts

pot holder- I got mine at Michael's
head of lettue
Flower shaped metal cookie cutter
wooden skewers
gum drops or drops

To start, cut the lettuce to fit the container. Then place kale over the lettuce to hide it.
Cut the pineapple into discs about 1/2 to 1 inch thick. Cut out the pineapple flowers from the discs.
Place the wooden skewer into the lettuce. Then place a gum drop on the skewer first to keep the pineapple from falling down. Then place the pineapple on, and lastly the cantaloupe. Make melon balls from a melon ball kitchen tool. Then use strawberries and grapes to decorate the rest of the bouquet.
