I’ve seen these darling watermelon cakes floating around Pinterest – but no tutorials. Have no fear. I’ve created one for you. This cake was a huge hit at Little A’s second birthday.
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.
- 1 Large Watermelon
- 1 Pint Blueberries
- 6 Ounces Raspberries
- A Few Strawberries
- Optional Topping: Whipped Cream
- Supplies: wooden skewers, toothpicks, rick rack or ribbon
- 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.
Strawberries can be trimmed into hearts to make a Valentine's Day cake.
