Cakes made with fresh watermelons are are beautiful, healthy and refreshing summer dessert, perfect for birthdays and other special occasions.
In 2011, I created some video lessons on how to make several types of beautiful cakes made with fresh watermelons. Since publishing these lessons, I’ve received hundreds of photos from readers and students from all over the world.
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. We’ll begin with simple cakes and progress to the more fanciful, multi-tiered birthday cakes.

Fanciful Birthday Cakes Made with Fresh Watermelons
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.
