Directions
1. Carefully slice the watermelon to shape of the cake you desire, keep in fridge to chill.

2. Frosting: Start by chilling the bowl and whisk in the freezer for 10 to 20 minutes,

3. Pour the chilled cream into the pre-chilled bowl and beat on until it holds soft peaks add in honey and continue to beat until it is well incorporated.

4. Remove Β the watermelon from the fridge, gently dab it with a clean paper towel to remove any residual moisture (this will help with keep the cake intact) begin frosting starting from top and work your way down.

5. Decorate with desired toppings.

6. Keep chilled until ready to be served.
