Watermelon Cake


When it comes to holiday desserts my family is always “too full” after a big meal for whatever crazy, fabulous dessert I’ve made.

Personally, I always have room for dessert so this concept is a bit foreign to me!

However, I can usually talk them into something “light” like Angel Food Cake or Jello (lol!). However, those are kind of boring/repetitive. I decided to try something different.

Watermelon Cake

Watermelon Cake: Juicy watermelon "cake"  topped with sweetened whipped cream and tart berries.


  • 7-10 Pound Seedless Watermelon
  • 2 1/2 cups Heavy Whipping Cream, Chilled
  • 1/4 cup White Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • Fresh Fruit, I used Strawberries/Blueberries


  • Cut the ends off of your watermelon with a very sharp knife. Set aside.
  • Set the cake upright. Cut off all of the green rind and white pith. Gradually cut off the longer sides until it resembles a circle.
  • Use a chilled bowl and beats to whip your cream until it begins to thicken. Add vanilla. Gradually add sugar a little at a time. Continue mixing until it forms soft peaks.
  • Blot watermelon with paper towels to remove any excess moisture. Spread whipped cream onto the melon cake using an offset spatula. Top with berries if desired.
  • Store in the refrigerator.
