This Watermelon Cake is a fun healthy way to celebrate Memorial Day or the 4th of July.  OK, it’s not really a “cake” but it looks like one without lighting an oven.    Summertime desserts are all about fresh cool ingredients and bright colors. This sweet cake is made with all fresh fruit and whipped cream topping and no baking. 

 

 
We have made watermelon cakes in the shape of a star but it’s added work and it really is not as impressive as some of our other watermelon desserts.     And this Watermelon Star Cake is made with all fresh ingredients to highlight the summer seasonal fruit.

Top the watermelon with blueberries and halved strawberries to resemble a five-point star.  Save additional blueberries and strawberries to serve on the side.
  
 
Cut this Watermelon star cake in the same manner as a regular cake and serve it in slices.   It’s a great alternative to sweet sugary cakes for potluck dinners or socials.
 
 
Serve each slice of this watermelon cake with additional whipped topping and blueberries or strawberries.   And you can use store-bought whipped topping or make it yourself easily at home using a whipped cream maker from Amazon.
