It’s fun for me to see how so many people have used my simplest watermelon cake lesson and have added all different fancy variations of their own. This article shows fresh watermelon and fruit cake ideas from students and readers that I have not yet published. I hope that you enjoy getting some ideas of your own from these photos of cakes made with fresh watermelon.

fresh watermelon cake by Susan Belden

Susan Belden created this fanciful fresh fruit cake and fruit tray for a 100th birthday celebration.

This was for a 100th birthday party for Mildred.
The party was for a woman that ran the hospital gift shop for 25 years as a volunteer. She’s in an assisted facility now but my little hometown hospital that I work at has never forgotten her and had a nice 100th birthday party for her the other day. She is still so with it that when she gave us the names of the people that she wanted us to invite she also rattled off each and every one of their addresses off the top of her head!! She and everyone else were very much impressed with her fruit display….so much so that she insisted that we deliver it to her facility so that she could show it off to the other residents there. Thank you so much Nita for everything that I have learned to do through your amazing videos.
