Recipe: Fresh Watermelon Cake


If you are looking for the perfect, light, refreshing and delicious dessert to serve, look no further. Below is a recipe for Cuisine Unlimited’s Fresh Watermelon Cake with Whipped Cream. It is an easy-to-make show stopper that is sure to impress your guests.

Ingredients (serves 10)

  • 1 large, seedless watermelon
  • 2 16 oz. fresh heavy cream
  • 2 Tbs. granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups fresh assorted berries
  • 1 cup fresh, whole mint leaves


In a mixing bowl, whip cream adding in sugar and vanilla extract slowly. Whip until stiff peaks form. Place in refrigerator to chill. Slice off the short ends of the watermelon and reserve for alternative use. Sit the watermelon flat and cut away rind to create a cylinder shape. Frost with chilled whipped cream and top with fresh berries and mint. Chill in refrigerator until ready to serve. Slice like a cake.
