No Bake Watermelon Cake

If you’re looking to cut calories but still want to have your cake, this all natural watermelon cake is what you need. My sister in law had gestational diabetes during her second pregnancy. So when it came to celebrating her birthday she decided she still wanted cake but not the traditional kind. Thats where this no bake watermelon cake came into fruition.

All the kids(and me!) were so excited you would think it was a real birthday cake! I’ve never seen watermelon disappear so quickly!

  3. Pat the outside of the watermelon dry with paper towels (this is important because it will help the yogurt adhere better)

    5. Grab a handful of sliced almonds and pat them all over the sides of the cake (this is a slightly messy step so make sure  you have a tray underneath)IMG_1445
