Watermelon cake for my Birthday!

By Karin Brosnan - Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Saturday was my birthday and I requested a watermelon cake that I had seen on the Pennywise blog so my cute daughter Emily and my cute mom created this for me!
They used watermelon, canteloupe, blueberries and limes. They started by cutting the rind off the watermelon and cutting it into a large circle for the base.
Then they did the same thing with the canteloupe...make sure the watermelon size works well the canteloupe...not too big or too small.
They repeated this process making each layer a little smaller than the one below.
With leftover pieces of each fruit they used a cookie cutters to make scalloped circles and stars to place on the outside edges. They used blueberries all around the base of each layer.
My cute daughter and mom....they are the best!!!
The top piece of canteloupe was tuned upside down so there was not a dip in the center. For the cake "topper" they used a slice of lime, one blueberry and a heart shaped piece of watermelon all on a toothpick stuck into the center. Then they decided to add slices of lime all around the edges to add some color to the cake.
I love how this turned out! So so cute...Yummy and made with love for Me ;)
Love you Mom and Emily so much!

  2. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

    And isn't that the cutest idea ever!

    It has all the pizazz and wonder of a cake w/o all the fattening carbs and glutens.

    YAY! They did a great job!
