Found this online and sounded and looked delicious. I have made these before a long time ago for a family member's birthday in the shape of a pumpkin and for 4 of July celebrations with fruit in the design of our U.S. flag. Both were easy to design the way you like. Let your mind go in the design.

Take the half of the whipped cream and mix with chopped fruits. Place the cream on top of a round cake slice. Place another cake slice on top of the cream. Spread the rest of the whipped cream on top and around the cake. Decorate the cake with colorful fruits and cookies as you like.
