Cantaloupe Cake

What do you do when you have leftover blueberries and cantaloupe?  My answer would be, make a fruit salad.  That sounded like a wonderful idea so I did a search for cantaloupe recipes.  Why, I did not search for a cantaloupe fruit salad is beyond me.  Cantaloupe recipes brought all kinds of interesting combinations for a variety of different presentations.

The minute, I saw cantaloupe cake, I knew what I was doing.  I am sure, this leaves you, scratching your head.  Is it just me, or have you heard or eaten a cantaloupe baked good?  If not, it is time to try something new.
