Watermelon Cake






This is a no bake, sugarless, fresh cake for my sweet on a special lovely day. This is a Hart to Hart entry for the hearty fun contest from the lovely blog Cuocicucidici. Here's how it's made.


Start by carving an outline of your imagined design on top of the watermelon. Making everything as symmetrical as possible. With this project you will need different knives to cut out the pulp easily without over carving.

Always  carve one design completely before doing the next. Like the seven roses first and then figure out the arrangement of the next which are ten hearts.


Use all three colors of the fruit. The green skin serves to highlight the hearts looking three dimensional. If you carve beyond the white pith you get deeper red.

Finish with simpler or smaller patterns to keep the focus on the main theme which are the hearts.

When done, plan to the present it on a platter with other decorations like carved zucchini leaves, carrot and green daikon flowers if you wish.

Enjoy Amore!
