Have you ever thought about baking a cake that will look like a watermelon? It would be a great fun trying to make this cake in reality. You will look at your job and you won't believe you did it. Everyone looking at your work will think that it is a watermelon but actually it is a cake that you had baked using pink Italian Meringue Buttercream. Chocolate chips that made the perfect seeds!
