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!
- 1 pound of watermelon
- 2 kiwi
- Small block of feta cheese
- Spearmint Sprigs
- Cube the fruit and cheese
- Alternate the fruit and cheese pieces
- I broke off toothpicks and placed them down the center to hold the cubes in place
- Garnish with spearmint sprigs
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.
