Cooking with Anya: Watermelon Cake

Before I go any further, may I just say how talented I think my 5 year old is??? Look at that cake. We are talking about a 5 year old decorating that. AMAZING if you ask me. That kid is going places!!!

Anya saw this cake on the cover of my Women's Day magazine and immediately asked if we could make it for the 4th of July. She also then asked if I could show America the cake we made for its birthday, so posting on the blog seemed fitting! :) This would be the perfect cake for a summer BBQ!

You can find the directions for this cake HERE. It calls for boxed mix and canned frosting, but I made my own buttercream for it and I used THIS yellow cake from Smitten Kitchen. I fell in love with this cake. I'm telling you... this is now my go-to yellow cake recipe. I can't wait to try it with chocolate frosting (the way a yellow cake should be eaten, in my opinion!).

Time to pass this on to Anya, since she is the reason for this post! Enjoy!


It was a beautiful watermelon cake and it was very pretty so I loved it. And you have to bake the cake. It was very, very a lot of fun. It was so amazing. It is beautiful and delicious. It is shaped like a watermelon and it is a wonderful dessert. It is good to make. For the seeds, you'll need chocolate covered raisins that will look like the seeds. This is the end.



Too cute!! I love it! And I agree. She is very neat and tidy at decorating for a 5 year old!
