Triple Melon Cake

Recipe from Jenn Johns (Cookies Cupcakes and Cardio)

Serves 8 people

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 Watermelon

  • 1 Cantaloupe

  • 1 Honeydew

  • 2 cups whipping cream

  • ¼ cup icing sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Fresh fruit for garnish (strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, kiwis etc)

 

Procedure:

 

  1. Cut 1½” thick, round slices from largest part of melons (layers of the cake): two from the watermelon, and one from each of the cantaloupe and honeydew.  Trim rind with a sharp knife and punch out seeds with a 2¾” round cutter.

  2. Using the excess watermelon pieces, and the same round cutter, cut two additional watermelon rounds (2¾”) to fill the holes left in the centre of the cantaloupe and honeydew layers.

  3. Prepare whipping cream by placing cream in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, and whip on high speed until soft peaks form.   

  4. Once the cream has thickened, add the icing sugar and vanilla extract, and continue to whip until stiff peaks form.

  5. Place one watermelon layer onto a plate, or cake board, and cover with whipping cream.  Place cantaloupe (or honeydew) layer next (with melon round filling hole in the middle).  Place honeydew layer next (with melon round filling hole in the middle) and cover with whipping cream. Finally, top with second watermelon layer, and cover entire cake with whipping cream.

  6. Apply a border of fresh fruit along the bottom of the cake base.

  7. Pile fresh fruit on top of cake.  

  8. Keep cake refrigerated until ready to eat.  Slice with a sharp knife and consume within 1-2 days.
