Watermelon Cake

I made this watermelon cake the other night and it was a huge hit. This cake-shaped watermelon presents itself like a cake, but is much healthier. Cut and decorate a watermelon like a cake for a summer dessert. I got the Pin from isavea2z.com. Original source: http://www.isavea2z.com/no-bake-watermelon-cake-recipe/ .

One watermelon makes two short cakes (or a tall one if you do things differently). Cut melon in half, cut the top flat, cut off side rind.

Cover cake-melon with thawed, but still chilly, whipped cream. Be careful about water and whipped cream mixing at the edge of the plate, it looks yucky when that happens. I like to let everything chill when it’s done to avoid melting.

I used this brand of cream because everyone in my house is lactose intolerant. It “contains milk and soy”, but milk is not expressly mentioned in the ingredients. We got it at Trader Joe’s. I survived.

Here’s a the nutrition facts. Lists a bunch of ingredients and then reads in bold: Contains milk and soy. I assume that means it was processed on a plant near milk and soy. (Lactose can make certain people very sick. Take what I say about the milk and soy processing plant with a grain of salt; I am one of those people on the internet you were warned not to believe. At least I digested my serving fine.)

Hide your watermelon cake in the fridge until someone comes home and finds it smiling at her.

Mom was delighted by the surprise.

I got this idea from Pinterest.
