Watermelon Cake

What you'll need


Working Method

Prepare white cake mix according to manufacturer’s instructions.  Color the majority of the batter pink and green using gel colors.  You will bake pink, green, and white layers.  Deposit 1 lb. prepared batter into sprayed and papered 8-inch cake pans.  Bake at 350°F until cake springs back lightly when touched.  Let cool completely.   Once cooled, split the white layers in half.

Place buttercream into 4 bowls, flavor each with watermelon flavoring.  Leave one white, color one pink, one light green, and one dark green.  Place the dark green cake layer on a cake board, top with green buttercream, spread to edges.  Place a white layer on top and top with pink buttercream, spread to edges, top with a pink cake layer followed by pink buttercream, then another pink layer.  To crumb coat the cake, place each color of buttercream into a piping bag and pipe corresponding colors around the cake in circles.  Scrape off excess buttercream.  Place internal supports/dowels into the cake.  To smooth ice the cake, pipe corresponding colors around the cake in circles and smooth ice using a heated spatula if needed.  Decorate with candy watermelon seeds.
