Easy Watermelon Cake

This Easy Watermelon Cake consists of my 30 Second Vanilla Buttercream Cake (with chocolate chips ‘watermelon seeds’) and iced with Perfect Buttercream Icing.

This is very easy to make and ice, looks amazing as a whole cake, and looks spectacular in individual cake slices – making it fantastic for a bake sale, or to take pre-cut into the office or school.
