    In a medium bowl, whisk together cake mix and gelatin powder until combined. Set aside.

    In a large bowl, beat watermelon, egg whites, and vegetable oil until smooth. Add dry ingredients, half at a time, and mix until well-blended. Fold in chocolate chips, if using

    For the frosting, blend watermelon juice, butter, powdered sugar, and cream cheese until combined and fluffy. Set aside some frosting for the top of the cake and some frosting for the sides of the cake. Add red food coloring to the icing for the top of the cake to achieve a rosy watermelon color. Add green food coloring to the icing for the sides of the cake to simulate the watermelon rind. Frost cooled cake. Place chocolate chips sporadically around the top of the cake to simulate seeds
