These gorgeous mini cakes look like they belong in a fancy dessert shop. But, look a little closer and you’ll see that instead of cake, I’m using naturally sweet watermelon as the base. You can use round cookie cutters or fun shapes like hearts and stars to cut the “cake.” Squirt the whipped cream right before serving so it doesn’t deflate and top with the garnishes of your choosing. Definitely give them a try (and also check out my Watermelon Dessert Pizza)!

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 5 Servings
  • • 5 watermelon rounds, approximately 2 inches in diameter and 2 inches tall (try using a cookie cutter)
  • • 10 tablespoons aerated whipped cream
  • • Optional garnish: mint leaves, slivered almonds, blueberries, mini dark chocolate chips, shredded coconut, granola.

Simply squirt about 2 tablespoons of aerated whipped cream onto each watermelon round. Add optional garnish and serve immediately.


Note: The aerated whipped cream will begin to “melt” after a couple minutes, so serve immediately. If the desserts are going to sit out longer, I suggest mixing in about 3 tablespoons of mascarpone cheese into about 1/2 cup whipped cream, then piping the topping onto the cakes and garnishing. This will help the topping hold much longer for that beautiful finish.
