Now’s the time to start thinking about summer entertaining!
It’s when we’re itching to try new recipes and party foods. This watermelon cake was on the top of my list, since it can be served at backyard BBQ’s, 4th of July gatherings, pool parties and everything in between. It starts with a Betty Crocker cake mix, and it’s easy to design. The addition of pink lemonade concentrate adds a slightly sweet-tart flavor, and is used in place of part of the water called for on the box.
Use red and green food coloring and top off with mini chocolate chips for seeds. The watermelon look adds to the summery feel of this easy-to-make pleaser!
