This New Way To Eat Watermelon Will Make Everyone On Instagram Jealous

By

New and interesting food trends are constantly popping up on social media.

Remember when we made you drool over those awesome avocado roses a while back? Well, it turns out those eye-catching floral food creations aren't the only impressive eats on Instagram.

We recently came across a new culinary craze that turns one of your favorite summer treats into an epic dessert. Behold, watermelon cake.

These creative cakes swap out the fattening cake batter and buttercream frosting for a healthy watermelon base that's decked out in a light layer of fluffy whipped cream. Watermelon cake is also pretty easy to make, since all you have to do is cut the rind off a watermelon, pat the sides dry, frost your watermelon and add whatever fruit toppings your hungry heart desires.

Whether you opt for a watermelon cake covered in whipped cream, a towering cake clad in coconut cream and toasted almonds or a frosting-less cake covered in colorful fruit, there's really no wrong way to get in on this refreshing food fad.

So, grab a watermelon and let your imagination run wild.

Take a look at the pictures below for a closer look at this awesome way to eat watermelons:
