Watermelon, Kiwi and Plum “Cake”. If you are planning a menu for this Labor Day weekend, you may want to add something colorful, pretty and refreshing to put on the dessert table.
Watermelon, Kiwi and Plum Cake is simply made with fresh fruit cut, shaped and layered to resemble a cake.
This cake made of only fresh fruit is so darn pretty to look at, and it makes a huge splash as soon as it hits the table!
Layers of sliced watermelon with layers of sliced kiwi, then topped with a plum and one blueberry all designed in a floral arrangement creates this lovely centerpiece to add to your dessert table.
Best of all, it takes only minutes to assemble!
Watermelon, Kiwi and Plum Cake is a lovely idea!
We love having something sweet and refreshing after every meal, and fresh fruit is always welcomed. It’s a much better and healthy alternative for people who have a sweet tooth.
Of course we can’t take the credit for this cake. It was my daughter’s friend, Stephanie who made this awesome fruit “cake.” She brought it over to serve as part of our dessert table. Isn’t that sweet! Every time we get excited about something, we enjoy sharing it with you. Thanks again Stephanie!
