Contributed by: mdAdded: Oct 02, 2007 at 10:31 PM


This is made to look like a cake, but it's made with just fruit.

  • 1 watermelon, about 7 to 9 inches in diameter (seedless, if desired)
  • 1 banana, to make a fake candle on top
  • 1 cherry, to make a fake candle flame on top of the banana
  • Assorted fruits cherries, blueberries, strawberries, grapes, etc., to decorate the outer top and bottom of the cake


  • Toothpicks
  • A flat serving plate
  • Space in your refrigerator to store the 'cake' until serving time
How to make it:
  1. Cut a 3 to 6 inch cross section from the watermelon.
  2. Pat the watermelon section dry with paper towels and place on the serving plate.
  3. Decorate, as desired, with fresh fruit (cherries, blueberries, strawberries, grapes, whatever you decide)along the top outer edge and the bottom outer edge, using toothpicks to secure them, if needed.
  4. Cut one end off the banana and stand the banana in the center of the cake.
  5. Secure a cherry on top of the banana with a toothpick.
  6. Cover loosely with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until serving time.
  7. Cut into wedges to serve.
