I had my first watermelon last week. It was delicious.
I'll always remember the ice cream cake my parents bought for me for my 10th birthday.
LOL.... when I was about six, I got a "doll cake" for my birthday party.... where a doll is put into a cake from the waist down, and the cake is a conical shape, her skirt being the cake and frilly frosting.
My mother said I could have ANY combination I wanted, and I chose chocolate cake with a lurid purple icing. I still remember it, along with her badly-hidden look of revulsion at the color combination as she cut it for us. :)
