Does anyone know how to make this watermelon cake?! Where's the recipe?
Ok...so you may not need this response now...but I just came across the question and I have an idea though I haven't - tried it I will share it:If you try it, let me know if it works!
You will need a large mixing bowl that will fit in your freezer.
Ingredients-Lime sherbert-Vanilla ice cream OR whipped cream
-Crushed lemon cookies mixed with butter to hold together??? 8 in round yellow cake cut in half to make thin???? Not even sure why the yellow layer is needed.
-half a watermelon, with the rind removed, a bit smaller than the bowl you will be using
Chill a large mixing bowl in the freezer while lime ice cream is softening on the counter.
When ice cream is soft enough to scoop easily - soft, but not melty. Scoop it into the chilled bowl, pressing it into the shape of the bowl as you go (if using a cookie/cake layer, leave about a 1/2 in of space below the lip of the bowl). Work quickly and return bowl to freezer.
Soften vanilla ice cream and follow step two. If using whipped cream, I would still let the lime ice cream firm up in the freezer before adding the whipped cream - and let the whipped cream firm in the freezer before step 4.
When ice cream layers are very firm, carefully set the watermelon in the bowl, fill in with extra ice cream if needed, trim watermelon if needed. If using a cookie layer, press it onto the top. Return to freezer until ready to serve? Or don't add the watermelon until ready to serve?
When ready to serve remove from freezer and soften slightly in the refrigerator? or carefully run hot water on the outside of the bowl? Place serving dish on top of bowl, hold dish firm to the bowl and invert. let sit for a minute or two so bowl can easily be lifted off. Serve as soon as bowl is removed.
If you have coments on the instructions from Joditest, reply to me. That was my account which I was using to test verious features on the site, but when I got the creative insperation for putting this treat together, I forgot to wait until I set up my real account. : D
