This cake was a hit with the children and parents at our two-year-old's birthday party. It is perfect for raw, vegan, gluten/wheat-free, refined sugar-free diets (and children who don't need sugar!). This cake was inspired by a 100% watermelon cake we had the year before.

Directions

  1. To create the base tier of the cake, cut 3 slices of watermelon, 1 to 2 inches thick, crossways through the center of the melon. Trim the rind from the watermelon slices, and place the largest slice onto a cake plate. Alternate layering sliced strawberries, slices of cantaloupe, and slices of fresh pineapple; follow with the second-largest watermelon slice. Repeat once more to make a layered fruit stack that looks like a cake.
  2. Thinly slice a few pieces of remaining melon and pineapple. With cookie cutters or a sharp knife, cut remaining fruit slices into decorative shapes. Decorate the cake tiers with the cut fruit shapes and remaining berries.
  3. Refrigerate until serving time. To serve, slice the cake with a sharp knife, one wedge at a time, and set the wedge onto a plate.

I make mine a little differently, but same concept. I cut the ends off the watermelon leaving the center flat on both sides, remove the rind to form an actual cake shaped watermelon and then decorate with other fruit using toothpicks to secure the pieces that need to stay in place. For the leaves, flowers, stars or other shapes I use cookie cutters or just a paring knife. Great alternative to a traditional cake and everybody raves about the look. It takes me about an hour to make, mostly cutting up all the fruit; putting it together is fun, easy and kid friendly. Any leftover fruit goes in a side bowl for fruit salad. My family always eats the bowl first saying the cake's too pretty to eat..
