The best part about the Fresh Watermelon Cake it is that you only need three ingredients to make it. It’s delicious, and even more so now because juicy watermelons are ripe and readily available at the grocery stores. It’s gluten-free and low in sugar, so it is also a great alternative to cake for those with dietary considerations.


  • 1 large whole seedless watermelon
  • 2 1/2 cups 580g heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup 50g sugar
  • Seeds from one vanilla bean
  • Mint sprigs for garnish optional


  • Using a large sharp knife, cut the top and bottom off of the watermelon flat and save the ends for later use. Turn the watermelon upright and carve away the rind in downward strips until all of the green and white pith is removed and you’re left with a red, ripe center. Carve away small pieces from the sides and top until the center is roughly cake-shaped.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the heavy cream on high speed with an electric hand mixer until it begins to thicken. Add the sugar one tablespoon at a time, and then the vanilla bean seeds. Beat until the mixture is thick and spreadable, about 3 minutes.
  • Transfer the watermelon to a cake stand or serving plate and pat the outside with paper towels to remove excess water. Spread the whipped cream over the entire surface of the watermelon. Use a melon baller to cut round pieces of melon from the two reserved ends. Place them on the top centre of the cake and garnish with mint sprigs, if using. Store the cake in the refrigerator.
