Summer Watermelon Cake

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Toothpicks are the secret to a zigzag border on this fresh summer cake. You don't even need to turn on your oven to get covered in compliments.

Ingredients

  • 1 Large Watermelon
  • 1 Pint Blueberries
  • 6 Ounces Raspberries
  • A Few Strawberries
  • Optional Topping: Whipped Cream
  • Supplies: wooden skewers, toothpicks, rick rack or ribbon

Instructions

  • Wash all of your fruit and get our your favorite cutting board and knife. Start by cutting off the two ends of the melon so it can stand alone on a plate or cake pedestal. Use these small ends to create a few stars for cute cake toppers. Metal cookie cutters work better than plastic.
  • Next, work steadily around the melon cutting off the remaining rind. Use toothpicks to secure the blueberries in a zigzag pattern and raspberries around the top. Finish decorating the top of the cake with a few strawberries and blueberries. Trim skewers into three different heights and then decorate with stars and rick rack.

Notes

Strawberries can be trimmed into hearts to make a Valentine's Day cake.

      It was a surprising hit with the great-grandparents and the little kids. We topped off the slices with a squirt of whipped cream. I’d love to see what creative spin you put on it!
