Watermelon 'Cake' with Honey-Greek Yogurt Frosting

Last weekend we celebrated both my mom's 60th and my sister's 33rd birthdays. Naturally, I made a huge brunch spread and decided since cake might be a little ridiculous for breakfast(not to mention, all of the other indulgent things I made), I decided on a watermelon 'cake'. It's fairly straight forward and doesn't require much time at all. For how easy it was, it definitely looked quite impressive!

Watermelon 'Cake' with Honey-Greek Yogurt Frosting (inspired by Pinterest)
Ingredients:
1 small to medium sized watemelon
1 cup 0% Fage greek yogurt (if you have a larger melon, you may need more)
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 cup slivered almonds
fresh berries for garnish

Directions:
Slice the skin off of your watermelon, getting rid of all white areas. Next, cut off the ends until it's an even cylindrical shape(similar to a cake layer). I opted not to make a middle layer for fear of it sliding around. Mix yogurt and honey until combined. Frost your watermelon in a generous layer. Using the cup of your hand, press the slivered almonds up the sides. Decorate the top with fresh berries then watch everyone's surprise when you cut into the finished product to reveal the fruit center!
