"Fruit" Cake

I'm working on an Independence Day Cake, but thought I'd post this today since I haven't posted in a while.

Here's a picture of a "fruit cake" that I made for my mom's birthday. She's on a major Weight Watchers kick and refuses to eat much of anything as tasty as real cake so I made her one out of fruit! :)


I used canteloupe and watermelon for the base of it and pineapple, strawberries and grapes for the decorations.



  1. Oh my goodness what a great idea. My moms birthday is in August and she would absolutely love this. She is Diabetic and if you let her eat sweets she will. So I try to avoid giving her the baked goods. But she loves fruit and this would be great. Can't wait to try this out for her.

  2. Hey CakeDreamer. I wanted to tell you that you are the winner of the giveaway. Email me your information so that I can send the stuff out to you. I am glad you entered and it paid off lol. Have a great holiday. Thanks for being so supportive.

  3. I told someone about this the other day and they LOVED the idea.

  4. This is great! It looks like a feat of engineering, to keep all that sweet, slippery fruit in a cake shape! I bet your mom was delighted! :)

  5. hehe pretty cake! Fruit cakes are ALWAYS a good alternative to the real thing! :)
    Happy Baking to you!!
