Watermelon - No! Cake!!! - Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #85 - State Fair - pennant. Ok I 'fudged' this one a bit. I made cake. Watermelon cake in the shape of a pennant! I hope it qualifies. If not, well... let me eat cake!!! :O)
I love this movie! State Fair is such a fun, charming musical! And dare I say it? Pat Boone and Bobby Darrin in the 1962 version were pretty darn HAWT! Ann Margaret was such a beauty too! Of course with this challenge we are featuring the 1945 version. STILL, a winner in my book. If you haven't seen this movie, shame on you! But not to worry, grab the DVD, pop some corn, or make a cake and grab the kiddoes and the hubs and gather round the boob tube and take a break from the heat with some good old fashion family time and an excellent movie!
DEETS on my CAKE:
I used one layer of white cake mix adding a small box of instant pudding to the mix. Then followed the directions on the box for the batter. I baked at 325 degrees in a dark pan. When my cake was totally cool, I cut the layer in half. Then I the half into 3 equal sized wedges. I layered one on top of the other using Cream Cheese frosting in between the layers. I then mixed green food color into some of the white frosting to make my green for the rind. spatula-d it on. Then I mixed some red into the more white frosting and make the edible part of the watermelon. My seeds are chocolate covered raisins. Of course this is a wedge of watermelon and everyone knows if you look down onto a piece of watermelon sliced like this, it has that pennant shape. Ok, I am off to have my cake and eat it too!
