To make this beauty you will need a watermelon and seasonal fresh fruits. I used berries, grapes and red currants. It isn’t easy to find ripe, seasonal, organic produce. This is what I was able to get. You may be luckier and get some organic cherries, apricots or peaches.
- 1 watermelon
- red currants
- edible flowers and fresh mint leaves for garnish
- Wash and pat dry the chilled water melon. Using a sharp knife cut off the tops, leaving a center part about 6″ (15 cm) thick.
- To make the base of your cake, insert your knife between fruit flesh and the rind, and guide it around to separate the rind from the juicy part of your watermelon. Remove the rind and correct the shape with a pairing knife.
- Place the perfectly rounded watermelon base on a cake plate pedestal (cake stand) or a large platter and decorate it with berries, currants, and grapes. Add flowers and mint leaves. Serve it right away and enjoy in good company!
