Real Fruit Birthday Cake

Hello Everybody!  Sorry I have been MIA lately.  I have been busy moving and working.  I have still been baking just not posting.   I really wanted to share this post with because I think it is so fun for birthdays and any other celebrations!   You can put whatever fruit you want on it to change the colors.  I made this cake for my aunt because every year she wants me to make carrot cake.  I don't like making carrot cake so I found this to make her.  She was asking me for weeks before if I was going to make her a carrot cake and I kept saying "NO! I am making you a cake but its not baked."  It kept her guess and she was so surprised when she did see the cake.  She is the kinda of person who only eats fruit for breakfast every morning so this cake didn't last long.

Making this cake I had some difficulties.  It was hard making all the layers flat, and the grape flowers were impossible.   You will use a lot of toothpicks and its kinda tedious.  It was fun to make though and my aunt loved it!

Adapted from Simplify, Live, Love - She has great directions and measuring techniques that I didn't use, but might have been helpful!

1 Large Watermelon
1 Large Honeydew
1 Large Cantaloupe
1 Bag of Grapes - Red or Green
Any other fruit you want ( I used Kiwi for the "65" and blueberries)


  1. Cut up melons, use toothpicks to hold together.
  2. Add decorations.
  3. Enjoy!
