Fresh fruit cake recipe

Are you looking for a super fresh and healthy alternative to birthday cake for babies and toddlers? Or maybe you have a child that doesn't even like cake? (Yes, they do exist.) Well this cake made of entirely fresh fruit is exactly what you are looking for.



  • seedless watermelon
  • rockmelon
  • kiwifruit
  • blueberries
  • strawberries


Step 1. Slice a cross section of whole seedless watermelon around 10-12cm in thickness. Trim the green skin off all the way around so you have straight sides. Place on a serving platter. Peel kiwifruit and slice crossways. 

Step 2: Cut 5mm cross sections of rockmelon and use cookie cutters in a small star and heart shape to cut pieces out. Place around the sides of the "cake" using toothpicks to anchor these in. Arrange some on top as well.

Step 3: Place blueberries around the sides of the cake and secure with toothpicks.

Step 4: Slice strawberries and arrange on top.
