Because really, how else could you impress and delight 20 people for $3 in 15 minutes?
You will need:
- a watermelon
- a knife
- a piping bag
- butter cream icing or whipped cream
- sprinkles, candles or other decorating items
- cake plate
First things first, buy a watermelon. Or, if you have much more forethought than I did, grow your own watermelon.
Once home cut the top and bottom of the watermelon off like so. It now sits nicely on a flat surface without all that pesky rolling.
|Watermelon sans rolling.|
Using a large star tip on your piping bag, fill the bag with buttercream icing.
** We interrupt this blog post for a fun game I like to call "Guess how I know that!" As it turns out, once the icing is on the watermelon you cannot smooth it out. It just slides right off. ..... Guess how I know that....** SO! Do not do as this photo demonstrates. Instead you will want to take a more "artistic" approach. That Guy used rosettes (swirls) because the straight piping isn't as pretty as you might be expecting.
|Do not do it this way because....|
|If you do it will look like this|
So we took the icing off a second time and tried yet again.
|So much better|
Then two days later we did it again for Audrey's special day.
