The making of Annabel Karmel's Watermelon Pig

I've been threatening to make this since we went along to the pre screening of Annabel Karmel's new kids cookery show, Annabel's Kitchen.
Annabel makes it look so easy (see pic below)...

I have to admit that I was more than just a little bit scared by the prospect but after throwing the challenge down during Annabel's Save The Children #borntoparty on Twitter last week, I really had to stop flapping and get on with it. 

It all got a bit messy - but the girls really did have a great time making him and I had a great time watching them.

And here he is in all his glory.... Mr Pig! What do you think?

As soon as we had finished I texted a pic to Annabel - who replied saying she thought he was 'Piggy Perfection'. I will die a happy mother.

If you fancy joining the challenge you can find the Watermelon Pig instructions online or in Annabel's new book, Annabel's Kitchen My First Cookbook.

Christine Mosler took up the challenge and here's her little pig. If you have one you'd like to share please leave a link in the comments and I'll add it to the post.

You can find the full piggy watermelon recipe on Annabel's website.


  1. He is very handsome indeed!

  2. Truly glorious and I LOVE that he weed! Such fun! We were that messy in part one too!

  3. Christine, It was great fun but the melon baller was a must have tool!

  4. That is brilliant! Your girls looked like they were having so much fun. I saw them on the show on Friday and my daughter was screaming Biba, Betty at the TV. Loved it!

  5. Thats brilliant! I'll be having a go.

  6. Finally... (and I blame the tonsillitis and lack of broadband) ...
