It makes a lovely presentation, although it does have to be eaten quickly.

I used slices of strawberries, kiwi, and peaches in between the layers … because that’s what was available locally.

This ended up being my birthday cake and I loved it! We added some vanilla vegan pudding to the top and it was a really nice topping. But vegan whipped cream or coconut cream that you sweeten a bit with powdered sugar and whip would be good, too.

To make this stay together while being sliced, I poked a few thin, wooden skewers through the top and pushed them all the way through to the bottom. It was easy to slice and everything stayed together perfectly. Just make sure to give anyone you’re sharing with the head’s up that there’s a wooden stick in their cake.

To make this, just take a watermelon and, using a sharp knife, slice off the rind … leaving a whole, peeled watermelon. Then slice three 2-inch rounds.

Layer the rounds with a few spoons of vanilla pudding or whipped coconut cream and your favorite sliced fruit … like strawberries, kiwi, peaches, nectarines, apricots, and cherries, and stack them like a three-tiered cake.  A nice touch would be a sprinkle of blueberries or raspberries.
