Delicious Watermelon Cake

Ingredients:
One large organic watermelon
Two cups of [raw] heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup of organic maple syrup
Organic blueberries (for garnish)
Organic coconut flakes, toasted (for garnish)

Preparation:
1. Cut both ends off of the watermelon (about two inches on each side). Then, place one of the cut sides down on a cutting board and carefully cut the rind off of the watermelon in a circular motion until you can remove the rind.

2. In a stand mixer, combine the maple syrup and heavy cream. Whip until stiff peaks form. Use this whipping cream to “frost” your watermelon circle.

3. Now decorate your cake with the blueberries and toasted coconut. (You can use any type of fruit you would like, including kiwi, strawberries or pineapple!)

4. Cool in the fridge for at least one hour. Cut like you would a normal cake.
