I know it's not a real cake, but when I saw this post on Martha Stewart's watermelon cake, I thought it was too cute and knew that I had to make it! Just recently, my hubby brought home a watermelon when he went shopping for dinner ingredients, and that night I carved my watermelon cake.
The method is to cut the watermelon into thirds, with the middle section being the cake. Then cut the round section into slices, just as you would slice a round cake. Finally using a melon baller, cut round balls out of the flesh at the ends of the watermelon, to decorate the top of the "cake".
To serve, just place a slice on a plate and top with a few of the melon balls. It was so easy and such a cute way to serve watermelon, and the kids loved it too!
*** Update: The kids liked it so much, that I made another one the following week! Here are some of the pictures:
