I can hardly believe that it is our last week at work… this year has just flown by so fast! Of course, with Christmas comes parties, and it can be a bit tough sometimes to think of what to bring to share as party food, especially knowing that we don’t have access to an oven at work and there will be plenty of cakes, cookies and sweets provided.
This year, I decided to forego the baking and bring some healthy snacks, that I know I will be craving after one too many chips or cupcakes.
A tasty treat that I have wanted to try, and thought would be a great alternative to baking a cake, is Martha Stewart’s watermelon ‘cake’.
Now this one was very confusing for Kris, as he didn’t understand where the ‘cake’ part comes from if it isn’t a cake. Really, it is just a more fancy way to serve sliced watermelon, which is perfect for an Aussie Christmas.
I couldn’t find a melon baller in the supermarket (where do you even buy those things?) so improvised with a spoon, therefore the presentation isn’t as pretty as it could be, but to make up for it I added blueberries on top for an extra treat.
A nice change from the usual unhealthy Christmas treats.
