The healthy cAke

Everyone knows how difficult it is to make something healthy! The other day was my brother’s birthday (he turned 9!) It reminded me of the time I made him a HEALTHY CAKE O_O

I used pintrest to get an idea of what it COULD look like.. but it didn’t :/ This is a short description on HOW i made my unique healthy cake 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 1 GIANT watermelon
  • 3 bananas
  • 2 punnets of strawberries
  • 1 whole pineapple (can used canned pineapple)
  • 2 oranges
  • 1 wintermelon
  • 3 kiwi fruits
  • bag o’grapes (red or green whichever gives the best colour!)
  • 3-4 Kebab skewers

Prep:

  1. Put watermelon on the side and cut into 4 parts. Cut away the skin and put aside
  2. Cut wintermelon into 3 parts. Cut away the skin and put aside
  3. Cut pineapple into small triangular pieces and put aside
  4. Cut bananas so there’s MANY circular pieces (put into water so it doesn’t turn brown) and put to the side
  5. Wash and cut the strawberries in half, put to side
  6. Peel oranges and cut like a mandarin 😀
  7. cut Kiwi fruit (be careful as they are FRAGILE) in half, scoop out of skin carefully and cut into half moon shape
  8. Take grapes of stem and put to side

hint: If you’re an OCD clean freak like me wash everything before assembling. Makes me feel sooo much better

Assembly REQUIRED:

  1. Put biggest watermelon section at the bottom followed by a wintermelon piece (Layer like this until you have desired height). Make sure the pieces get progressively smaller to get that cake layer look!
  2. DECORATE with smaller fruit (Creativity and imagination is key!). It gets a bit tricky keeping the fruit to stick to the sides.
  3. As you now know, it can feel like it will just fall as it’s slippery and layers will just slideeee. I kept my cake up using 3 skewers to help hold its shape.
  4. Take pictures and serve!

Guests REALLY enjoyed it! It was great for a hot summers day and the leftover fruit we made into fruit smoothies!

PS: This was the first time I have EVER made a fruit cake! It may not look as pretty as pintrest images BUT damn if it didn’t taste great!
