- watermelon seedless
Cut the ends off of the watermelon and stand it up on one end so that it doesn't roll around. Cut away the rind so there is no white left, and carefully carve the watermelon into a cake-like cylinder.
Slice the kiwi into thin circles and place them around the top of the cake. Thinly slice a mango and fan out the pieces on top of the kiwi slices.
Place the blueberries around the perimeter of the watermelon, using toothpicks to hold them in place.
Slice the pineapple, cantaloupe, and honeydew into about 1/2" thick pieces. Cut these into fun shapes with cookie cutters and place them around the sides of the cake using toothpicks.
For a nice presentation, place the finished watermelon cake onto a cake plate and surround with blueberries and raspberries.
Special Tools: Toothpicks and shaped cookie cutters also needed
We recommend organic ingredients when feasible.
