I’m so behind, I know! Thanks to those who keep checking back now and again… I will post the fire truck cake directions soon as I’ve been getting many requests, but please give me some time. I just started a new job and therefore falling behind on everything else!
Now where was I? This summer was a blast with fond memories of my kids stuffing their faces with cold, sweet, juicy watermelon. I paid homage to this wonderful fruity goodness with none other than a cake rendition.
The cake itself is…can you guess…a jello cake. Did I mention this was a cool, refreshing cake? 🙂 Although I decorated it as a watermelon cake, I ended up using cherry jello because I could not find a watermelon flavored jello and of course, didn’t have time to make a watermelon jello from scratch. I used whipped cream frosting and as you can tell did not whip enough to cover the watermelons generously. I was scraping my bowl for every tiny bit of whipped cream…
Needless to say, you can make a better looking watermelon cake if you use regular frosting instead of whipped cream as it is harder to get a smooth spread with whipped cream. Then again it could just be me.
