Notes

Savor the sweetest slice of watermelon you'll ever eat! The chocolate seeds are a melt-in-your-mouth prize.

Hello. I made the watermelon cake a couple of months ago for my daughter and her co-workers. They absolutely loved it, said it was delicious. I put a picture in my album, it's not the greatest picture but you can see what it looks like.
