Watermelon “Cake”

on June 29, 2012

There seems to be an overwhelming amount of birthdays, BBQ’s and events during the summertime…not to mention 4th of July.  Try a healthy alternative to cake…and create a watermelon “cake” for your next bash.

One large watermelon

A variety of assorted fruit and berries

Toothpicks and skewers

Slice the top and bottom off of the watermelon.  Slice the top third off.  Make cuts straight down along the sides of the larger piece and small piece to create a round “cake” shape.  Place smaller piece on top of the larger and secure with 3 skewers. With cookie cutters, cut shapes out of watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, etc.  Secure with toothpicks and skewers.
