This is a cake I made for my nephews birthday! I was really proud of it and wanted to share!! Every layer on the inside is a different color, since his birthday fell on Easter this year I used mini eggs for what the tractor was pushing! (I found the tractor at Dollar General...it was the perfect size)

My boyfriend and I had so much fun making this watermelon keg! It only takes about 15 minutes and it is sure to be a huge hit any any summer event, we will definitely be making this again for future BBQ's and beach trips! All you need is a
one bottle of liquor of choice
and a spout (I just took one off of a drink dispenser I already had, similar to the one pictured...and just put it back when done)
So to begin cut the top of the watermelon off and scoop out all of the yumminess inside. Set it aside for later!
Next get your spout!! So we actually used a drill to drill a small hole through the watermelon to give us a starting point to screw the spout in. Screw in the spout making sure it is a tight fit! (This may take a little help from a strong man aka my boyfriend screwed the spout in for me......he is stronger)
Next we tested the spout flow, and checked to make sure it did not leak!
Now the fun part....the drink making!! Add all of the watermelon into a high powered blender and blend until smooth.(we had about 9 cups of watermelon) Add in 2 cups of the alcohol of choice. (or 3 cups depending on how strong you want your juice & the size of your watermelon) and blend a little longer! With the two cups you could taste the flavor of the alcohol but it was not overwhelming, which is what I prefer, so I would recommend doing some taste testing! Adjust your ratio depending on the size of the watermelon.
Pour the mixture back into the watermelon cover with top and pop in the fridge for 24 hours.
p.s. I would love to hear what type of flavors you come up with! I personally think that Cotton Candy would be FANTASTIC with this ( I will probably try that next!)
