Patriotic Watermelon "Cake"

Pin It Now!

Red, white, and blue desserts are so fun to make for patriotic celebrations! If you're trying to aim for something a little healthier this year, try making a Patriotic Watermelon "Cake!"

You only need 4 ingredients:
  • 1 large, ripe watermelon
  • Fresh blueberries
  • Heavy whipping cream
  • Powdered sugar (to sweeten the heavy whipping cream if you wish)
* If you are a Cool Whip kind of person, you can skip making your own whipped cream. Personally, I don't like the taste or the ingredients of Cool Whip, so I take the extra time to whip the heavy cream and a little powdered sugar on high with an electric mixer until I reach desired stiffness.


(Even though the picture shows only half the "cake" covered in blueberries, the intent is to cover the entire surface. Or, you could make a flag instead by frosting whipped cream stripes across the watermelon and keeping the blueberries in the upper left hand corner. However, each piece, once it is cut, won't look as pretty or taste as yummy without the blueberries.)

Don't let your leftover watermelon, whipped cream, and blueberries go to waste! If you have a star cookie cutter, use it to cut shapes out of the leftover watermelon. Add a dollop of whipped cream to each star, then top each star with a blueberry. Makes for some fun, festive 4th of July finger foods.
