I made my first-ever fresh fruit “cake” today. It was so much fun to build and everyone liked it!
Isn’t this a beautiful group of friends!?
A close up of the finished product. I’ve seen these online and wanted to try making one, but needed a good reason.
My good pal Las Weezas provided the incentive. Hydra and I hosted a Songmakers song circle today and Las Weezas’s birthday is this week. She is a wonderfully talented, supportive friend and musician. She’s part of The Harmonistas, which have changed my life in so many good ways. She’s always willing and capable of backing me with her guitar and voice when it’s just the two of us, too.
First step of the fresh fruit “cake” is to cut the ends off of the watermelon and then shape it into a cake-like cylander.
(Please excuse my ailing point-and-shoot camera! Weird color and accidental border!)
Dug holes for the grapes, then skewered them into place with toothpicks and topped them with blueberries. Used more balls on the top. I later added grapes and blueberries to the balls on top with toothpicks and filled in with banana slices and blueberries.
It was really fun to to and I’ll do it again. Great way to celebrate without processed sugar!
