I make mine a little differently, but same concept. I cut the ends off the watermelon leaving the center flat on both sides, remove the rind to form an actual cake shaped watermelon and then decorate with other fruit using toothpicks to secure the pieces that need to stay in place. For the leaves, flowers, stars or other shapes I use cookie cutters or just a paring knife. Great alternative to a traditional cake and everybody raves about the look. It takes me about an hour to make, mostly cutting up all the fruit; putting it together is fun, easy and kid friendly. Any leftover fruit goes in a side bowl for fruit salad. My family always eats the bowl first saying the cake's too pretty to eat..

This was a great alternative to the traditional cake. However, don't let it fool you, it isn't as easy as it looks! Worth the effort though.
