Watermelon Fruit Cake

Ingredients

  • 8 oz. whipped topping
  • Watermelon
  • Blueberries, fresh
  • Cantaloupe
  • Flower fondant cutter
  • Plastic wrap
  • Mini wooden skewer
  • Two mini springform pans
  • Markers
  • Parchment paper

Instructions

    1. Trace the outside of one spring form pan with a marker onto parchment paper to create a circle.  Repeat to create two circles. 
    2. Cut the two circles out.  These will serve as your watermelon stencils. 
    3. Line one mini springform pan with plastic wrap. Once lined, add a one-inch layer of whipped topping to the pan and freeze it for at least one hour to create a frozen layer to be used in the cake. 
    4. Cut a large slice of seedless watermelon approximately 2 inches thick that will accommodate both stencils. Cut two circles of watermelon with a sharp knife to create two circles of watermelon.
    5. Place the watermelon circles onto paper towels to drain the excess liquid for at least 15 minutes on one side, flip and let set on the other side for an additional 15 minutes. 
    6. Rinse the blueberries and let them set.
    7. Cut the cantaloupe in half, remove the seeds and cut one large slice.  Remove the rind & use the flower fondant cutter to create a cantaloupe flower for the tope of the cake at the end.
    8. Remove the frozen whipped topping from the freezer and remove the plastic wrap.
    9. Place one watermelon circle onto a plate, add the frozen whipped topping center, and top it with the remaining piece of watermelon.
    10. Slide a skewer through the center of the fruitcake.
    11. Holding onto the skewer, frost the cake with the remaining whipped topping.
    12. Line the top and bottom of the Fruit Cake with blueberries & slide the cantaloupe flower onto the top.
