  3. Slice the cantaloupe into approximately 1-inch thick slices and discard the caps.
  4. Remove the seeds from each slice using a 3-inch round cookie cutter. Cut off the rind. Set them aside.
  5. Add the whipping cream to a bowl. Whisk until firm using the hand mixer. Add some lemon zest and mix some more. Transfer to a piping bag.
