Scale

Ingredients

  • one watermelon
  • one pineapple
  • 2 kiwis
  • 45 oz blueberries
  • a few handfuls of grapes
  • toothpicks
  • 2 wooden skewers
  • star cookie cutter (preferable metal, to cut through pineapple)

Instructions

NOTE: These directions are for the same cake in the pictures above. The watermelon used was smaller because it wasn’t watermelon season. If you have a larger watermelon, you will likely need more fruit for decorating. The diameter of the final rounded watermelon part of this cake was about 6 inches.
1. Cut the top and bottom off of the watermelon. (see picture above)
2. Cut the four sides of the watermelon off, leaving a square shaped watermelon with corners that still have rind on them. (see picture above)
3. Shape the watermelon into a rounded cake shape, beginning by carefully trimming back the four corners. Shave small pieces at a time so that you don’t remove too much. (see picture above)
4. Cut 3-4 slices of pineapple about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Depending on the size of the pineapple and star cookie cutter, you should be able to get at least 2 star pineapple cutouts per slice.
5. Use a teaspoon to scoop out balls from leftover watermelon removed from top, bottom and sides in steps 1 and 2. (these are for the base of the cake, next to the kiwi slices)
6. Peel and slice kiwi.
7. To make the star pineapple grape and blueberry sticks: Add in this order – one grape, one blueberry, one grape, one blueberry, pineapple star. Only push them down far enough for the pineapple star to have the skewer about half way through. You don’t want it to poke out of the top of the star. Add the star sticks to the cake.
8. Breaking toothpicks in half, stick the sharper end into the bottom of the blueberries. Stick the other end of the toothpicks into the watermelon to line the top edge with blueberries.
9. Stick toothpicks into the other 3 (or more) pineapple stars and stick them into the sides of the watermelon, spacing them evenly around the outside of the watermelon.
10. Place overlapping slices of kiwi around the base of the watermelon.
11. Place watermelon balls around the base of the watermelon, next to the kiwi.
12. Use remaining blueberries and grapes to fill in the remaining area around the base of the watermelon.
