Fruit Cake

My boyfriend and I have summer birthdays, just 2 days apart. Last year was our first year being vegan and our birthdays came just a month after the switch to cruelty free food. 

We had a vegan cookout and made this beautiful cake out of fruit! It was super easy! Oh and my friends kid, who was a 3 year old super picky eater, asked for seconds on cake! I’m pretty sure it was because he thought it was actual cake so that made me laugh! 

You can use any fruit for this and get as creative as you like. However, you do need watermelon as your base to make it large. This year I may try and add another layer on top to get crazy! 

First thing you do is cut off the ends of the watermelon so you can stand it up. Then you take a bowl that fits just the pink area and not the green rind. And you use that as your guide. I used a long bread knife to go around the bowl and then you can lift the outside green rind part right up and voila! There’s your cake base! You can always trim it up if you don’t cut it perfectly so don’t stress! 

Then use any fruit you want to decorate it! I use a melon baller on the ends of the water melon so it didn’t go to waste and used those and decorations. I also went with kiwi and mango because that’s what I had on hand. Berries would be an easy cute decoration too! 

You could even get crazy and use whipped cream for extra ‘icing’ decoration! If you make this, please share your pictures! I’d love to see your decorations and what fruits you use!
