One of my very first Plate Art articles, back in the summer of 2011, was a watermelon cake. I decided to update it with these refreshing and eye-catching watermelon log cakes. Sometimes it’s nice not to feel guilty about eating a slice of cake!
You will need:
- 1 whole watermelon, oval shaped
- sliced kiwis
- sliced passion fruit
- sliced strawberries
- Cut off all sides of the watermelon, trying to keep as much flesh on as possible.
- Lay flat and continue to remove the rind with a sharp knife. For best results, leave a thin layer of white flesh, then remove the white layer while carving out a perfect log.
- Decorate each log with one type of fruit or create rows with assorted fruit.
Note: Strawberries and blueberries must be checked for bugs. Consult with your rav about proper checking methods.
