As someone who has recently cut way back on the massive amount of sugar that has been the norm for my entire life, a healthy alternative to sweets is always welcomed.  With June being a month of celebrations for dads and grads, birthdays, and weddings, cake is on everyone’s mind.  Since I am trying to skillfully avoid refined sugar-laden cakes, the discovery of this fruit cake made my heart sing.

how to make watermelon "cake". such a cute & healthy idea!

According to Rachel Rockwell at Bubbly Nature Creations who masterfully designed and photographed this delicious concoction, you can simply slice the watermelon and remove the rind.  Once you have your basic “cake” structure, use colorful fruits to embellish your cake.  You may need toothpicks to keep the ornamentation on the cake, so remind little ones to avoid swallowing anything they shouldn’t.

Need more proof that this is a bonafide winner when it comes to cake replacement therapy?
