Bake off

On Sunday our church hosted a
bake off
for my good friend Michelle who is
suffering from Lyme's Disease.
The cost of her treatment each month is insane
so a bunch of people from our church put our baking skills to the test
in a cake-off auction
to come around her as the body of Christ and help raise money to cover the cost.

I wish I would have taken some pictures of all the cakes people made.
There were so many a.m.a.z.i.n.g. ones.
(Maybe I'll hunt someone down who took pictures of them to post later. I know you guys would love seeing them!)

Unlike many of the fabulous women (and men) at our church
I have no.baking.skills.whatsoever.
So when I saw this watermelon cake on the cover of Woman's Day magazine
I figured I could probably pull it off.
I loved that it required little baking skills
and minimal cake decorating skills.
You can find the recipe and details for the watermelon cake here :)

Here's how my watermelon cake turned out.
