Who’s Up for Solving this Fruit and Cheese Mystery?

The Rubik’s Fruit Cube. Have you seen it?

More importantly, can you solve it? It’s beautiful!  It’s a watermelon, kiwi, and feta cheese appetizer. I’ve been been pulling my hair out trying to google where this originated. I ran into it on a facebook page that had a link that someone found on Pinterest and from there the mystery began.

I found a Rubik’s Cubewich, but you have to buy the book to find out how to make the sandwich. Fatlottagood that does me. Who could eat that sandwich anyway? I mean, take one bite into that thing and you’ll have a lapwich.

Anyone want to take a stab at where this came from and what gadget would cube your fruit and cheese so it’s all uniform? How do you think it stays together?  If I assembled this masterpiece, I’m not sure I’d even let anyone touch it. I could easily see someone going to grab a piece and me screaming,  “No, don’t eat that! It’s a centerpiece!” Like Meg Ryan yelling at Tom Hanks in You’ve Got Mail.  “What is that? What are you doing?  That caviar is a garnish!”

Seriously, I wish I could find at least one Food blog or Foodie out there that attempted this and gave away the secret.  I’m up for the challenge.  Any other takers? Anyone? I’ll let you know how it turns out. To be continued…

Update: Here is my version of the Rubik’s Fruit Cube.

The colors aren’t as vibrant.

Overall, I am pleased with how it came out. It can be replicated. How did I do it you ask? Well, you’ll have to figure that out on your own. After all, you’re supposed to solve a Rubik’s cube.

Just kidding. I’ll be nice and share how I replicated this. I purchased the square fondant cutters at Michaels and used the smallest cube cutter in the pack.

It was the perfect gadget!

Perfect light summer appetizer and centerpiece.

Remember earlier when I said I wouldn’t let anyone eat it? That part is true because after I was done photographing it, it was gone in 2.3 seconds by yours truly. It was DEElicious! Light and refreshing.

  1. Nope, you weren’t in the Spam folder Jean. I googled the hell out of that fruit cube and tried in vain to find a recipe or instructional blog. I saw that one picture everywhere over the net too and a couple other variations of it also. Thanks for sharing that link. I looked at it, and that guy’s is really nice. There was no link to a blog or recipe by him, so as of now, seems I’m the only one giving up the goods. ;) Yahhhh!

  4. of course your colors aren’t as vibrant, you probably didn’t “enhance” them with food coloring or use a special camera to take the picture!! However, it does look fabulous and real

  5. After studying this it seems it will take a whole kiwi to make into a 2 inch cube. Once you get that right it will be easier to cut the watermelon. I did find instructions for one like this. They used 5 cubes to start. It didn’t explain at all what holds it together. Trying it in just a few minutes.

  6. Good job! I want to make this sometime soon, too. I figured the vibrancy of the colours might have a little wee thing to do with camera settings and/or photo editting programs.
