If you adore fresh fruit as much as my family and I do the folks at Good Cook have the perfect bowl for you. The Good Cook 3-piece Bowl keeps watermelon and cut fruit fresher longer. It's available exclusively at Bed Bath and Beyond right now. So what makes this bowl so special. First of all it's big and you can certainly cut up a whole watermelon and it will fit. It's also got a lid so you can put it directly into the fridge. The best part is the two part bowl system that allows you to separate the juices from the fruit. My husband was able to pour the watermelon juice right out and make a drink out of it. It kept our watermelon fresh for several days. I know we will be enjoying a lot of watermelon and fruit salad this summer thanks to this handy bowl.
1 watermelon (pick one that is large in the middle)
1 cup blueberries
1 cup strawberries
1 tub (8oz)whipped cream non-dairy topping
1 20oz can of crushed pineapple -drained very well
1/4 cup powdered sugar ( or sugar substitute for low sugar option)
Toasted coconut (optional)
5-6 inches. Chill watermelon slices really well until you are ready to assemble.
Drain crushed pineapple really well. If you do not do this step, you filling will become runny. Take a little less than half of the whipped topping and mix with the drained pineapple and sugar. Chill filling for 20-30 minutes before assembling cake.
Place one watermelon circle on cake plate. I placed wax paper on either side of the cake plate to keep the plate clean. Top slice with filling. Top with second slice of watermelon.
Take remaining whipped topping (if you like add some sugar to taste) The coat the outside of the entire watermelon cake with the topping. Carefully apply toasted coconut if you desire.
Note: You can use any fruit you like to decorate the top of the cake such as kiwis, raspberries, blackberries, pineapple etc...
