Another birthday, another cake. Top of her 7th birthday list were 2 watermelons and a pineapple. I have no idea why she was thinking that way but I managed to make this for her, complete with watermelon flavouring (which tasted like alcoholic honeydew to me)! It probably turned out cheaper than buying a watermelon too as I had most of the stuff and scrounged the green icing. The intense shade comes from a LOT of paste colouring in 3 colours blended for the perfect pinky-orangey-red.
Being the pedant that I am, I tried to get the chocolate chip 'seeds' to sit in the right places and on the whole, they did. That was down to my very basic grasp of maths rather great baking skills though. And a pinch of luck I suspect.
