These rainbow fruit cups are completely stunning and guaranteed to steal the show! The perfect recipe to add elegance to your next occasion.
I have to be honest, I kept going back and forth about if I should post this recipe or not. Because it doesn’t quite fit the simple, quick, unfussy style of my recipes. You’ve probably caught on by now to the fact that I like quick and easy recipes that are guaranteed crowd-pleasers. I make no-bake nutella cheesecake instead of real cheesecake, unstuffed cabbage instead of stuffed cabbage rolls, and one pan meals like onion roasted chicken and paprika chicken and rice. I’m all about quick. And let me tell you, these rainbow fruit cups are not quick. Not by any stretch of the imagination.
But sometimes you’re looking for something with that wow-factor. And these have a HUGE wow-factor! Trust me. I made them this past weekend for a friend’s bridal shower, and I can’t even count how many compliments I got. You’ll be getting compliments all night. They will steal the show! Line them all up on a tiered stand, and boy are they STUNNING. Like jaw-droppingly stunning (clearly so stunning that I needed to make up the word “jaw-droppingly”).
And while they’re not quick, they are easy in the sense that there aren’t any complicated steps, long instructions to follow, and chance of messing something up. Chopping fruit is easy…but you’ll be spending a lot of time doing it. So be prepared with a good tv show, podcast, radio station, or friend on the phone. Thank goodness my mom helped me make 48 of these on Sunday. I’m telling you, they take time. But it was all 100% worth it for the elegance they added to the shower (and all the compliments didn’t feel so bad either).
So next time you need a stunning dish to instantly add elegance to your occasion, these rainbow fruit cups are exactly what the doctor ordered. Enjoy!
