The Easiest Cake You'll Ever Make: Watermelon Cake
While Hannah was looking at Instagram she saw that someone had posted a picture of a cake made of fruit. She demanded it for her birthday, talked about it for the weeks leading up to it and turned down the suggestion of any other cake. I also made cupcakes for the party so that everyone didn't think I was "that mom who would only let her kid have a cake made of fruit!"
This is a crowd pleaser, it's so easy, healthy and looks beautiful.
one large seedless watermelon
strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and kiwi
Turn the watermelon on its side, cut the top and bottom off. Carefully cut away the rind, being careful to not cut too deep into the fruit.
Even the watermelon out, cutting some more off the top and bottom so that when it stands up it has a cake shape. Place on a large serving plate. This step can be done the day before serving.
Slice up the strawberries and you're ready to decorate.
To serve, bring a big knife and cut it up! We've made this a few times since Hannah's birthday, it's such a fun way to bring a fruit plate to a party.
