After a few back and forth messages with my sister I read those words I had been expecting since I received the picture ' Mel.... you should make this for my baby shower'
Well sis if you are reading this THANK YOU ! I think I am in love with this cake.... I made a test one this weekend and now I feel everything should be soaked in rosewater, stuffed with cream and watermelon and draped with strawberries, grapes and pistachios !
Seeing as I had never ventured into the world of watermelon cakes before I decided to follow a recipe with a few small changes requested by my sister. I used the recipe by Gourmet Traveller
Here is how my watermelon cake turned out!

The only difference is where it tells you to add rosewater I only add a third of what the recipe says. I think too much rosewater overpowers all the other flavours.
Enjoy!! I know I did
