|Fruit Cake with Coconut|
Don't run for the nearest door just because the title says Fruit Cake. This is a cake of a different color. Fresh, Spring, Summer, Juice, and Glorious were all invited into the recipe.
|Symmetrical melons are easier|
to work with. 2 cakes from one
melon. Cut off ends. Cut in half.
Fortunately, it takes very little time to prepare, and no two or three months to ripen. This is ready to be eaten in minutes (can wait a few hours). So grab your forks.

Blackberries were stabilized with
|Just waiting for someone to sing "Happy Birthday,|
dear Teresa" then add the whipped cream.
*PS. The "cakes" were served up to many oo's and ah's. Coconut cream on the side. As the cream warmed to the room, it seemed to hold its shape better. Recipe said to chill it first. Next experiment will be to start with the coconut milk at room temp. No sugar or flavor added to the coconut milk. It was sweet enough on its own.
