The No Bake Watermelon Cake recipe and opinions expressed in the blog post are my own. I received a fresh fruit bowl for review purposes as part of the Good Cook blogger program. The sponsor is responsible for giveaway prize fulfillment. #bbbproduct #freshfruitbowl
Planning to serve up a watermelon this summer? Try this easy no bake watermelon cake recipe. It’s not really cake, it’s all melon. And it’s impossible to mess up. You can have one layer of watermelon or try stacking two (the 2 layer version is pictured above).
The icing on the cake is a simple fresh fruit dip made from Cool Whip, sugar and cream cheese. (See my cheesecake Fruit Dip recipe here). If you already have a favorite fruit dip recipe, use it as the icing on your fresh watermelon cake.
How to make a watermelon cake.
The middle part of the watermelon works best for cake layers because it is usually the widest, roundest part of the melon. So I use a knife to slice off each end of the watermelon. Then I cut off the rind. The watermelon cake layer can be as thick as you want it to be. My layers are about 2 inches tall.
If you use 2 layers, you’ll stack them just like you would with a regular cake. Put a layer of melon on bottom, then add a layer of “icing” (fruit dip) on top. Add the next watermelon layer. Top with more fruit dip icing.
Now for the really fun part! Decorate your watermelon cake with your favorite fresh fruits and berries. I needed a Red, White and Blue patriotic dessert idea for our Fourth of July picnic. So, I used strawberries to make a star on the top of the cake and added lots of blueberries on and around the cake.
You can get as creative as you want. I have seen watermelon cakes decorated with all sorts of fruits and nuts. A watermelon cake is a light, refreshing dessert everyone can enjoy.
Have you made a watermelon cake? What are your favorite fruits and berries to use?
