Watermelon Impostor Cake

Sara Andrea


I saw this cake in a magazine years ago when my kids were little and would make it in the summertime. My daughter is getting her first apartment, and will be cooking for herself and asked me to get her a copy of the recipe. Kids grow up too fast. Enjoy every minute and this cake is a happy memory of those times.
