  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large honeydew melons
  • 20 fresh strawberries
  • 1/2 pint fresh raspberries
  • 1/2 pint fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 pint fresh blackberries, halved
  • Powdered sugar

  1. Beat whipping cream until foamy; gradually add powdered sugar and vanilla, beating until soft peaks form. Set aside.
  2. Cut 3 (3/4-inch-thick) slices from outer edges of each honeydew without cutting into cavities. Peel slices. Cut 1 round from each slice with a 2 1/2-inch round cutter. Cut rounds in half horizontally. Set aside. Reserve remaining honeydew for other uses.
  3. Cut 12 strawberries in half lengthwise; slice remaining strawberries.
  4. Spoon a whipped cream mound in center of each serving dish. Arrange 4 strawberry halves, cut side down, around each whipped cream mound. Top each whipped cream mound with a honeydew round, raspberries, and a dollop of whipped cream. Top with a honeydew round, blackberries, and a dollop of whipped cream. Top with a honeydew round, sliced strawberries, and a dollop of whipped cream. Sprinkle with sugar. Garnish, if desired, and serve with Cantaloupe Sauce.
  5. Note: For a less formal presentation, toss bite-size sliced fruit with the sweetened whipped cream and cantaloupe sauce.
