Watermelon “Cake”

Watermelon “Cake”

I hope you had a nice 4th of July!  I had some friends over and decided to make this watermelon “cake” as an alternative to the cupcakes and other cakes I have made for previous parties in an attempt to keep it healthy.  I said attempt – because the fresh watermelon is frosted with cream cheese frosting, but I am sure the berries balance it out and bring it back to healthy.  I cut a watermelon in the shape of a cake and tried to frost it with some cream cheese frosting.  Because the watermelon is wet, it makes it a little difficult to get perfect.  I decorated it with berries and used a star cookie cutter to make little stars threaded on skewers and decorated them with blueberries.  I kept it in the refrigerator until serving so the frosting had a better chance of sticking to the watermelon.  Everyone seemed to like it so I would say it was a success.  Click here for the recipe…
