Interesting recipe. Loved it
This is simply superb
This review is based on 20 pre-k kids, they all loved it and thought it was the coolest thing ever! I really enjoyed making this and it was so beautiful once I got it all decorated. I used wilton dye and used the 18 tip for both the green and the pink. Thanks for posting such a fun cake that will make any kid smile.
Very delicious cake w/ gorgeous presentation. The grandkids LOVED it and the kids did too. I found it a bit sweet for me but that may be due to old age and my "sweet" taste buds dying off... *lol* I used the watermelon-kiwi koolaid and Wilton food coloring to dye the cake batter. I made a buttercream frosting b/c I'd rather not get into the all the additives in the prepared frostings. I followed the directions and didn't have a lick of trouble. What wasn't eaten at dinner last night was finished at today's lunch! Thanks for sharing such a neat recipe.
This is on the cover of the one of the food magazines in the checkout lane right now. I'm not sure which one. I made four of these for the holiday. I made minor changes. When looking for the Kool aide called for in the recipe, I noticed that they have Watermelon Kiwi flavored, but it is clear (no pink/red dyes). I'm a cake decorator, so I have red food coloring at home, so I bought the watermelon/kiwi Kool Aide. I followed the rest of the recipe as posted. I got lot's of oh's and ah's from the kids. Everyone said it looked and tasted like watermelon. Thank you for posting this recipe.
This was so fun to watch our daughter make! She's 16 and really getting into cooking, especially desserts! Her dad and I were out and about and she called 3 times on the cell phone! (Her very first layer cake.) She used cherry Kool-aid, which we thought added a good flavor to the mix. Someone on the Betty Crocker site didn't like the flavor, but we did! Anyway, it was so cute and whimsical, and we had my old little mommy over for this dinner and she was tickled over this cake. We didn't put any frosting between the layers because we wanted the overall look to be just right. And the mini chocolate chips DO look kind of like seeds! This one is a winner, especially for company or parties.
What a great idea! I made this recipe for my son's preschool class, but in cupcake form. Used tropical punch flavored Kool-Aid and baked the cupcakes 21 minutes. The cake is bright red, just like watermelon, and the mini chips stirred in really do look just like seeds. The Kool-Aid gives the cake a fruity flavor as well as bright color. What a great idea for a summer party! Thanks, Mindi, for sharing the recipe!
