FRUIT cake! yum!
I got the idea from pinterest to make a birthday cake for myself completely out of fruit!
It was pretty fun! Although, you have to put it together just hours before the party so that the fruit doesn’t start looking weird. haha.
Well, there is no real “recipe” for this. There are a myriad of different fruits you can use to decorate the outside, though the main part should probably always be a watermelon… just because they are so big. Here is what I made mine with.
Real Fruit “Cake”
1 large watermelon
1 c. green grapes
2 oranges (cut up with the skin off)
1 lb. strawberries
fun little orange juice jigglers
I made some awesome healthy fruit jigglers, and let me tell you… They are so much fun! They jiggle hard-core and my kids think they are great! This is a great healthy recipe and I actually got it right off the Knox Gelatine box. I can’t believe I haven’t tried it until recently. I have done a couple different varieties: 100% grapefruit juice and this time 100% orange juice. Fairly plain for now while I am figuring it out, but I think it will be fun to mix up juices and add chopped fruit to it as well. There are a lot of fun possibilities.
