Watermelon Cake

1 package white cake mix
3 ounces watermelon jello mix
2 eggs
1 1/4 cups water
1/4 cup oil
2 1/2 cups prepared vanilla or cream cheese frosting
red and green gel food coloring
chocolate chips

In a mixing bowl, combine dry cake mix, gelatin, eggs, water and oil. Beat on low speed just until moistened. Beat on high for 2 minutes or until well blended. Pour into two greased and floured 9" round baking pans. Bake at 350F for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.

Set aside 2 T. frosting for decorating. Place 1 1/4 c. frosting in a bowl; tint red. Tint remaining frosting green. Place one cake layer on serving plate; spread with 1/2 c. red frosting to within 1/4" of edges. Top with second cake. Frost top with remaining red frosting to within 3/4" of edges. Frost sides and top with edge with green frosting. Place reserved white frosting in a small heavy duty resealable plastic bag; cut a 1/4" hole in one corner. Pipe around top edge of cake where green and pink frosting meets. For seeds, insert chocolate chips upside down on top of cake top.

Yield: 12 servings
