Next, slightly soften raspberry sherbet which will be the watermelon fruit and add chocolate chips for the watermelon seeds. Sasha LOVES white chocolate so she asked that we use white chocolate chips - like seedless watermelon that has white seeds! We added a few chocolate chips here so you'd get the idea.
The green skin of the watermelon is made from whipped cream colored with green food coloring. Here is Sasha whipping the cream. The cream should be well chilled.
Remove the frozen vanilla and raspberry layers from the freezer. Have hot water in the sink so you can gently unmold the layers from the bowl by setting the bowl into the hot water for just a few moments. Once you feel or see that the ice cream has separated from the bowl, place a platter over the top and invert the frozen layers onto the platter. Once that is done, 'frost' the ice cream layers with the whipped cream. Return to the freezer to harden off.
Here is a finished slice of the watermelon birthday cake. It is a fun project to do with kids and they love the finished results. Try it sometime.
Happy Birthday to you, Happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear Sasha, happy birthday to you.
