My 19 year old niece and I made this gorgeous fresh honeydew melon cake. I knew I wanted to try another melon cake since this one was so much fun and delicious. For our honeydew melon cake I was inspired by this. My niece found this kiwi lotus flower and carved one for our cake. I removed the rind from the honeydew and cut off the top and bottom, removed the seeds from the center, filled it with extra honeydew pieces and topped it with a round of honeydew. We made fresh whipped cream and frosted the cake a little to hide the honeydew round that covers the hole. We decorated the cake with green grapes, melted chocolate chips (put in a ziplock plastic bag, cut off a small corner and pipe the melted chocolate onto the melon), and strawberries.
I was so pleased with our results! It took some time, but it was a rewarding activity. If you make your own melon cake, I would love to see it.
