Watermelon Star Cake
Cool, sweet and juicy watermelon cake—could a dessert be more perfect for summertime barbecues and picnics?
1 watermelon oblong and seedless
16 ounces whipped cream or light frosting
8 ounces blueberries
8 ounces strawberries
Powdered sugar for sprinkling
- Wash the watermelon and pat dry. Cut a three-inch thick slice from the center of an oblong, seedless watermelon. Place flat on a cutting board and use an oversized star-shaped cookie cutter (or sharp kitchen knife) to cut a star shape. Set on paper towel to drain excess water.
- Place on a serving dish or cake stand.
- Pipe whipped cream or a light frosting between the bottom edge of the star and the plate. Dot with blueberries.
- Frost the cake with topping and arrange blueberries and cut strawberries on top. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve.
