Fabulous Real Watermelon Cake!


I saw this idea first in a photo facebook update from a raw vegan about a year ago, and my daughter loved the idea! We really love fruit in our household! After two semi-failed gluten free vegan “cakes”, we remembered this fruit cake, and realized we were going at the problem the wrong way. Instead of trying to find things that sort of taste like our old life, we should just fully embrace the new! So I went looking for watermelon cake instructions. The best I found were here at Paleo Cupboard, however we didn’t even attempt the whipped coconut frosting, our family doesn’t seem to ever like anything made with real coconut. I did some google image searching and discovered that people were making these cakes layered using toothpicks, and that was just too cool not to give it whirl! I wanted to try a fruit compote over it, and even found a good looking recipe, however Meg wanted it fruit and she wanted it all raw, and so it was! She chose all the fruit, and the candles, decorated it herself, and she LOVED the effect!

Meg’s Watermelon Layered Cake
2 Personal Watermelons
1 pint blueberries
1 pint strawberries
Small can pineapple rings
Cookie cutters
Toothpicks
Cut the ends off the watermelons, then cut the rinds off in a circular fashion. Leave one block of watermelon whole, cut the other block into two rings, cut the rings smaller to make layers. Attach all the layers with toothpicks. Decorate with fruit using more toothpicks!
