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.  This watermelon, kiwi and plum cake may be just the thing!

It is simply made with fresh fruit sliced, cut into shapes and layered to resemble a delicious cake.

A cake made with 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!

It’s an easy dessert that will impress all of your family and friends!

 We love having something sweet and refreshing after every meal, and fresh fruit is always welcomed.  Watermelon cake is 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” and brought it over to serve as part of our dessert table.  Everyone loved it!  She was so sweet!  And, of course, every time get excited about something new like this colorful  watermelon, kiwi and plum cake – we just had to share it with you!

Thanks again Stephanie!

 

Watermelon, Kiwi and Plum “Cake”

  • 1/2 of a small seedless watermelon – quartered, and cut into 1/2- 3/4-inch slices

  • 3 kiwi’s – peeled and sliced into 1/4-inch thick

  • 3 to 4 plums – rinsed, cut into 6 to 8 slices each

  • 1 blueberry

Using a white dinner plate or serving plate.

Arrange the first layer of watermelon slices into a pie shape onto the plate.

Stack another three layers of watermelon slices on top and in the shape of a cake.

Top the watermelon with two or three layers of sliced kiwi. And lay them in a circular design.

Then arrange small slices of plum into a windmill as a “cake” topper, and garnish with a blueberry in the center of the windmill.

Use the remaining plum slices to accent the dish, placing them around the perimeter of the cake.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.
