I thought about my birthday cake I knew what would happen, because it happens every year. Everyone would have a slice and I would be left half a cake, that I would guiltily eat for the next few days. You know you have done this before too!
So I decided to do something different this year. I wanted to make a watermelon cake. I felt bad for my guests, but decided it would be best for me and my family.
My husband even put candles in and I blew them out with my son sitting on my lap. This cake is a representative of what this year is for me: a year all about becoming a healthier me!
If you would like to make this cake too, it really isn’t that hard. Find a large watermelon that is pretty round.
I started by cutting off both ends of the watermelon and then laying the flat edge on the counter.
I then sliced off sides till I got a hexagon. I then sliced this large piece in half for the top half I took an inch off each edge then shaved it down to a circle shape.
I used my cake plate, placed the large hexagon piece down first then placed the circle on top.
To decorate I sliced strawberries and saved the best to use whole. Then I filled in the spaces with blue berries.
This would be fun for a Fourth of July party or just a summer party. You can use any kinds of fruits to decorate. You could even get melon and make flowers with cookie cutters.
Healthy Mom = Healthy Family - That is my life motto and I hope to encourage it to be yours too. January 2011 I made the decision to lose weight and lost 80+ pounds. I saw my boys start getting active with me and I realized I wasn't only changing my life but also my boys.
