Ditch The Fruit Platter For A Tiered Watermelon Cake Loaded With Fresh Fruit

Fruit is a necessary part of summer. Even people who don't normally like fruit come out of the woodworks and will enjoy a handful of blueberries and some juicy strawberries.

Next time you're up to serving some fruit this summer, ditch the fruit platter for a super extra tiered watermelon cake loaded with fresh fruit.

Behind this confetti of beautiful colorful fruit lies a three-tiered cake completely made out of fresh watermelon.

This is certainly one way to present fruit!

These look complicated to make, and I'm not going to lie to you, they are—but what I can absolutely guarantee is that it will be so worth it in the end.

Blogger The Lemon Apron spells out everything we need to make this tiered watermelon cake come to life, which includes carefully carving three whole watermelons.

Consider this basically summer's version of pumpkin carving.

There's so much you can do to really personalize and get creative with your watermelon cake.

Try "icing" it with a light and refreshing whipped topping and roll it in toasted almonds for an added texture and nutty flavor to complement the sweetness of the fruit.

Don't worry, we're not leaving chocolate out of this. Drizzle some melted over chocolate over the cake to really make it indulgent.
