Want to know how to make a watermelon cake? See the steps here and then follow the recipe for a great summer dessert.
There’s nothing quite like Summer entertaining as it takes you outside on the patio, or by the pool, or on the beach. Yummy food and drinks are a major component too, with pot lucks and theme parties being so prevalent. This “watermelon cake” that I made for my latest contribution to Tablespoon is the perfect dessert to bring to your next summer pot-luck party. Get the recipe here or simply make a white cake and tint it a deep pink color before baking.
The real treat is that it looks like a big cross section of watermelon with the green rind and chocolate chip seeds. Here are my tips for getting the look:
Make a Watermelon Cake
Baking 2 layers will yield 2 watermelon cakes.
Divide white icing into 2 separate bowls. Add green food coloring to one until desired color is achieved. Add red food coloring to the other until desired color is achieved.
Start with the red frosting and cover the top of each cake layer, leaving about 1/4 inch border.
- Using the green frosting, cover the sides and border area.
- Top with mini chocolate chips for “seeds.”
I hope you’ll give this cake a try. Your guests and the kids will love how it looks!
