Summer is here folks and nothing says summer like a sweet refreshing watermelon.  Here is a yummy cake recipe to celebrate the almighty watermelon.

Watermelon Cake

• 1 (18 ¼ oz.) pkg. white cake mix
• 1 (3 oz.) pkg. watermelon (or other red flavor) gelatin
• 2 eggs
• 1 ¼ cups water
• ¼ cup vegetable oil
• 2 ½ cups prepared vanilla or cream cheese frosting, divided
• Red food coloring
• Green food coloring (gel)
• Chocolate chips

Combine cake mix, gelatin, eggs, water and oil.  Beat on low speed until moist.  Beat on high for 2 min..  Pour into two prepared 9 inch round pans. Bake at 350 for 30 – 35 min. or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.  Cool 10 min.; remove from pans and cool completely.

Set aside 2 Tbsp. frosting for decorating.  Place 1 ¼ cup frosting in a bowl; tint red.  Tint remaining frosting green. Spread bottom layer with ½ cup red frosting to within ¼ inch of edges.  Top with second layer.  Frost top with remaining red frosting to within ¾ inch of edges.  Frost sides and top edge with green frosting.  Place reserved white frosting in a plastic bag with corner cut out.  Pipe around top edge of cake where green and red frosting meet.  For seeds, insert chocolate chips upside down into cake top.
