Fresh Watermelon Cake
  1. Place watermelon onto a damp cloth on a chopping board. Using a large sharp knife, carefully cut a 12cm-wide slice from the watermelon, then cut a 10cm-wide slice and an 8cm-wide slice.
  2. Place the 12cm watermelon round onto the board. Using a small sharp knife, remove the rind and and white flesh. Shape the melon flesh with a small sharp knife to form a round shape. Place the watermelon round onto a large heavy-duty serving plate.
  3. Remove rind and white flesh from the remaining watermelon slices and trim to form rounds. Place watermelon slices onto the watermelon base to form a layered cake shape.
  4. Using a 3cm star-cutter, cut pineapple flesh into stars. Thread a pineapple star and 3 blueberries then another pineapple star onto an 18cm bamboo skewer. Repeat to make 10 skewers. Insert skewers into the top of the watermelon cake.
  5. Using a 4cm star cutter, cut stars from the rockmelon. Use a melon scoop, to scoop balls from the watermelon
  6. Decorate the watermelon cake with remaining blueberries, rockmelon stars and watermelon balls (see the photo). Serve with any remaining watermelon balls.
Tips & Hints:
  • Choose a watermelon that feels heavy for its size and has a hollow sound when tapped.
  • Note, this fresh fruit cake can be made a few hours ahead of serving and stored in the fridge.

Amazing. A great substitute for a birthday and you can change which fruits you use depending on the children. Overall would recommend.
