Watermelon Cake

A Quick Cold Summer Treat
Mix chopped up strawberries with Cool Whip and spread between two Graham Crackers.
I make mine about 1” thick and use the Lite Whip.
I quick Freeze then wrap each one.
It makes a nice treat that isn’t so high in calories.

Here is a recipe from a friend who makes it quite a lot for picnics.

Watermelon Cake

1 package (18-1/4 oz.) white cake mix
1 package (3 ounces) watermelon gelatin
2 eggs
1-1/4 C. water
1/4 C. vegetable oil
1-1/2 C. prepared vanilla or cream cheese frosting, divided
Red and green food coloring
Chocolate chips

In a mixing bowl, combine dry cake mix, gelatin, eggs,water and oil. Beat on low speed just until moistened. Beat on high for 2 minutes or until well blended. Pour into two greased and floured 9-in. round baking pans. Bake at 350° for 30 - 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.

Set aside 2 tablespoons frosting for decorating. Place 1-1/4 C. frosting in a bowl; tint red. Tint remaining frosting green. Place one cake layer on a serving plate; spread with ½ C. red frosting to within 1/4 in. of edges. Top with second cake. Frost top with remaining red frosting to within 3/4 in.of edges. Frost sides and top edge with green frosting.

Place reserved white frosting in a small heavy-duty reseal able plastic bag cut a ¼-in. hole in one corner. Pipe around top edge of cake where green and pink frosting meets. For seeds, insert chocolate chips upside down into cake top.
Yield: 12 servings.
