I’ve seen this recipe floating around Pinterest the last couple days and had to share. This dessert is the perfect way to finish off a dinner party during a hot summer day, but it’s looks are a little deceiving. Can you guess what this “cake” is made out of?

Did you guess it? The cake is made out of watermelon!

I’ve seen watermelon cakes before, and Faith even wrote about one a couple years ago, but this one is too pretty to pass up. Instead of just using watermelon for the “cake”, blogger Sprinkle Bakes added a smooth layer of homemade whipped cream to the outside and then topped with melon balls – so pretty! How refreshing does that sound on a hot day?
