Watermelon Cake

A fruit cake like no other. Vibrant, refreshing and absolutely Instagram-worthy, this watermelon cake sees the juicy fruit jazzed up and presented like never before. It’s worth keeping in mind that the size of the watermelon will dictate the height of your cake and that a sharp knife is essential for carving. Decorate with fruit and whipped cream just before serving.

    Slice off top and bottom of the watermelon and place upright on one end. Using a large knife, slice from top to bottom, angling knife as you get towards the bottom, to remove all of the peel and white pith. Then slice water- melon to desired height (keep it tall for a dramatic birthday cake or slice evenly in the middle to form two separate “cakes”) and thinly slice along sides until smooth and even.
