Tips for pumpkin carving: Draw your design on with a pencil or water-soluble pen and then remove with a damp cloth when you're done. You need a steady hand and sharp knife for carving. If your design involves skin-peeling, do that before thinning and scooping out the flesh. Ice-cream scoops are great for scooping the flesh out. And to make it last longer than a couple of days, give it a spray with WD40 (but not inside the house).
