Cake Not Cake

My daughter is stronger than I–she can live without refined sugar. So for her birthday party last night I was wracking my brain as to what sort of “cake” I could make for her and her friends, that didn’t have sugar. I stumbled upon a “cake” made of watermelon slices on pinterest (my guilty internet pleasure). It looks like the original idea came from here, though I can’t say for certain.

Isabelle's watermelon cake

Given that I was making this cake in the middle of January there weren’t lots of choices for watermelons. I made this out of four personal size watermelons. I think it would be better if you could make it out of a really long summer watermelon, that way the slices would fit together better. Even though my slices were a little uneven it all got gobbled up.
