DIY : Watermelon Cake Recipe

This Recipe I came acorss on handmadecharlotte , is a perfect summer recipe : Watermelon Cake !

It is not based on watermelon , nor does it taste like it, but its’ name was inspired from the colors of ingredients used!

Here’s what you’ll need to make your watermelon cake:

  • Pills­bury Sugar Cookie dough
  • Green food coloring
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup gran­u­lated sugar
  • 1 tea­spoon vanilla
  • 1 cup green grapes (cut into halves)
  • 2 — 3 cups diced strawberries
  • 10 ounce jar of straw­berry preserves
  • 1/4 cup black M&Ms or raisins

start by pre­heating the oven to 350 degrees. Add green food col­or­ing to one tube of Pills­bury Sugar Cookie dough and mix well.

Spray the bot­tom of a cheese­cake pan or small pizza pan with non-stick cook­ing spray or line the bot­tom with parch­ment paper. Spread the dough evenly in the pan. Bake for 16 — 20 min­utes. Allow crust to cool.

Mix the cream cheese, gran­u­lated sugar and vanilla together in a bowl. (Keep refrig­er­ated until ready to use.)

Cut the green grapes in half and dice the straw­ber­ries. (Keep refrig­er­ated until ready to use)

When the sugar cookie crust is cool, remove it from the pan and spread 2/3 of the cream cheese mix­ture on its bot­tom and around the top edge. Put the remain­ing cream cheese mix­ture in a pip­ing bag to pipe between the fruits once you have them in place.

Line the outer edge with green grape halves and fill the cen­ter with diced strawberries.

Using a spoon, spread the straw­berry pre­serves lightly over the top of the diced straw­ber­ries.

Pipe the remain­ing cream cheese mix­ture in a line between the grapes and the strawberries.

Finally, put the M&M candies (used as watermelon seeds) randomly on the strawberry-filled center.

Have a blast!
