I Have a Confession to Make…

Summer is here!DSC_1069

Well summer is finally here and with it comes a host of BBQs, potlucks, and picnics. I thought today I would share my newest obsession – I have made this cake twice already this week. I made it for Thomas’ last day of school party… his class loved it! I also made one for the Crossfit kids BBQ and it was a hit yet again with Mom’s rushing to take pictures to post onto Pintrest!

Now for the confession I have to make (puppy dog eyes). This morning I ate almost a whole layer of this cake for breakfast. The leftover cake was sitting in the fridge taunting me and I just couldn’t take it any more! So I dove in. I brought the whole plate over to the breakfast table and ate every last bite. And it was worth it. Oh sure the Kale monster tried to sneak in a fork full or 2, but that cake was all mine! (Evil laugh)

There is just something about watermelon in the summer time that is so refreshing. Now that everything is starting to come into season the produce just tastes better. This weekend coming up we are hitting our local market and I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us.

But back to the cake. lol

This really was easy to make. We all helped out and were able to enjoy the left over fruit before we were off to the party(ies).

 

By using whatever fruit is in season the cake will look different each time you make it. I know next time Rob has put in a good word for Honey-dew melons to be used, but the kiwis and freshly picked berries seemed to be calling our name this time round. From our garden we were able to pull some nasturtiums to decorate the top as they had just started to bloom and looked beautiful next to the strawberries and mint leaves. The berries were so lush and ripe that I will have to confess many didn’t make it on the cake. (Insert angelic grin here)IMG_0461

From our family to yours, may you be able to enjoy all the fruits of the season!
