Fun with Food-Watermelon Cake
|November 27, 2012||Posted by Kristopher under Kids, Produce|
Since it’s a little bit chilly outside, I decided to give everyone something to do once it warms up again! I call it the watermelon cake. The ingredients list is short, you only need an oblong watermelon, a few strawberries, a handful of blueberries and some whipping cream. You’ll also need a large knife to cut the watermelon, and I used a vegetable peeler and a zester to create the markings on the slices.
A beautiful, oblong Florida watermelon.
Cut the watermelon in half, as best you can without it splitting on you.
Once you have the melon cut it half, cut 4 slices as close to the same size as you can. It doesn’t have to be perfect, just call it a work of art!
Here are my four slices, as you can see, they’re definitely not perfect. Nonetheless, we’re ready to start carving!
Here I used the zester and vegetable peeler to create the designs on the sides of the slices. You can get as fancy as you’d like with your designs. I decided to keep it pretty simple. I made slashes and waves…
…and dots and lines.
All four slices ready to be cut!
Cut each round into 6 slices.
Start to rebuild your cake with the different slices. It may not sit perfectly, but that’s okay!
Whip the cream. (Or buy some from the store)
Squeeze the whipped cream on top of the cake and decorate with strawberries and blueberries.
Check out how I re-stacked the slices to give a unique look.
Final shot. Enjoy your watermelon cake! Let me know how yours turns out!
