In my monthly search for images of watermelon cakes, I’m consistently amazed by what some people are able to create out of flour, sugar and a little icing. This month’s featured watermelon cake is a good example.
It comes from the baking genius behind the website SweetDreamsCakeApp.com. Not only does the outside of the cake look incredibly realistic – the stem on the end looks so real! – but the inside looks great, too.
“I began to wonder if I could make the inside (of a cake) look like a real watermelon, as well as the outside,” said the baker in a blog entry about the process. “Then I took it even further and decided that if it is going to look like a watermelon, it should also taste like a watermelon.”
For those of you interested in recreating the artistry, the blog entry includes step-by-step instructions and photos. I’m pretty sure I won’t be attempting to create it, but I sure wouldn’t mind tasting it!
