Amazing but healthy cake
So here I am trying to be healthy and eat well and along comes my birthday. So what does one do? Make a healthy Watermelon Birthday Cake!
This recipe is super easy…. and so very tasty – way better tasting that I even imagined it would be – I actually felt this would be a sacrifice but it really really wasn’t – I would totally make it again.
On top of that, it looks beautiful too!
Here is all you will need for this Watermelon Birthday Cake
(Ok you can make it anytime really not just birthdays!)
1 watermelon – seedless
heavy cream or whip cream
frozen pomegranate seeds
This Watermelon Birthday cake is so easy and of course no bake. BUT it looks totally like Martha Stewart made it. I even impressed myself… Here are the simple directions:
All you really need to do is cut the watermelon in half and take the ends off so that you have two rounds. Take the rinds off like this because it is easier – and then shaped them so they were a bit more round for staking on top of each other like layers in a cake (see picture). Then pat them dry so that the whipped cream wouldn’t slide off and placed the first layer on a pretty cake tray (the one pictured is my mother in law’s tray – super pretty).
I cheated and used a spray can of real whipped cream and then just put one watermelon round down and sprayed the top fully of whipped cream. Then sprinkle a mix of blueberries and pomegranate seeds on top that I had mixed together and allowed to thaw a bit before I started on the watermelon project. I added fresh strawberries here and then layered on the second round of watermelon. I then did the same with the whipped cream and berries artfully (also because I’m messy) dropping berries along the side of the cake.
I suggest you do all of the layering just before serving but you can cut the watermelon into shape prior to this… it worked great and tasted amazing!
I hope you try it!
