A few months ago, I learned that Melanie loves watermelon.
no-bake watermelon cake. Naturally, I decided that I had to make this for her. I'm not a huge watermelon fan myself, but I do like this refreshing fruit. On Tuesday of this past week, I set out to the store and went through the process of selecting a melon. I don't know if there's some technique to selecting the right one, but I just picked one that looked really green and was a good shape. Next, I had to cut it into cake-like shapes.
Unfortunately, Lady Luck did not come with Wednesday. I didn't manage to drain enough liquid from my milk meaning the icing was more like a syrup then a stiff whipped cream. The icing oozed off the top and down the sides creating a white lake beneath my two pink islands.
Happy 21st to a Wonderful Friend!
