Watermelon Cake Encouraging Speech & Creating Yum!
Watermelon Cake is going to become a summer tradition in our house. I just love that this recipe is so simple to make and looks so elegant, plus it has a surprise factor; no one expects watermelon on the inside of this elegant cake. This dessert is light and refreshing and the taste is decadent! It is perfect for any summer get-together or celebration.
Watermelon Cake Ingredients
- 1 whole seedless watermelon (small 4-6 lb.)
- 1 tub (8 oz.) Whipped topping, thawed
- 3-4 Strawberries, hulled
- 1/3 cup Raspberries
- ¼ cup blueberries
- 1 box/bag granola cereal
Prep and Directions:
Adult: Cut off both ends of watermelon. Stand watermelon on cutting board. Starting at top of melon, use long, thin, sharp knife to carefully cut between rind and fruit all around watermelon to separate rind from fruit. Remove and discard rind.
Child: Pat melon with paper towels to dry; place on platter.
Child: Frost entire watermelon with whipped topping. We used “Truwhip the Natural” whipped topping.
Child: Place granola on sides of cake (onto the whipped topping) using a cupped hand.
Child: Decorate the top of cake anyway you like with berries or sliced fruit.
Adult: Slice and serve or store covered with tinfoil in refrigerator, until ready to serve. Last couple of days in refrigerator.
