Watermelon Cake (someone has an imagination)

Cut the ends off the watermelon to form the top & bottom of the cake; then cut away the rind from the sides of the cake.
Use cookie cutters to cut cantaloupe flowers and honeydew leaves.
Use toothpicks to attach to cake.
Decorate with additional strawberries, blueberries, apples, grapes, and oranges

That sure looks FUN & Delightful!

But I guess you would have to include a knife for guests to cut the watermelon too.

What a novel idea! I've heard of a cake cake baked to look like a watermelon (with raisins for seeds) but I haven't seen a watermelon cake!

Thanks for sharing!

Your welcome...I guess this is for someone who has extra time on their hands. Or needs some quiet time. Smile

Watermelon is my DB favorite, but DD and a niece that won't touch it. I don't understand not liking a good watermelon.
DB's birthday is coming up, what a great idea!
DB is most phinicky eater you'd ever try to cook for. I've shared meatloaf & Swiss steak story previously when I was trying to take a meal to his house last May!

I'm with you Lurah. I LOVE watermelon. I could eat the whole thing! I'm not sure I would go so far as to do the one above though, unless I have lil ones to help me. I guess it would be a "craft" project then! Smile
