Fresh Watermelon Cake

Surprise! Nope it’s not April Fool’s Day, although this may pass for an April Fool’s Joke, it is no joke!
This is a natural, diabetic (?) friendly “cake” recipe to cool you off this summer!
The original idea came from Real Housemamas on facebook. They actually have a different recipe for the icing, but I thought to keep it fairly healthy with the Fresh Whipped Cream as an icing instead. Feel free to play around with this idea and make it your own as I did!

As I mentioned in the video, I did have some trouble with the whipped cream icing “sticking” to the cake, which is why I think the original recipe for the sugary icing on Housemamas page would be a bit more like “glue”. But my method of piping the whipped cream onto the “cake” rather than spreading it with a spatula as we would a normal cake, worked out just fine.

Remember to towel off any excess moisture from the watermelon as much as possible before adding the icing.


    Being summer here in Australia over Christmas, this is a great idea!! Watermelon cake it is this Christmas!! Awesome idea!
