"Fruit" cake

Recently one of Tara's preschool friends had her last day at school so we decided to make her a little going away cake that was allergy friendly,yummy and healthy!
This tower of fruit is a watermelon, rockmelon and pineapple carved out of its skin and held together with one wooden skewer. I also used cookie cutters(and some play dough cutters!) to create shapes to "stick" to the tower.These stay in place well as the juices help it stick together. Tara practiced her sequencing by threading the grapes in order of red and green onto wooden skewers then Mason added a strawberry at the end. I then stuck these into the watermelon base. Lastly i cut up some leftover fruit and placed it around the base.
This idea is great for first birthday parties or those tricky parties with children allergic to wheat/dairy/egg etc.

  1. Great idea. I've been a bit slack providing suitable treats for little friends with allergies that are interesting, too.
