The 'Sugar and Charm' blog has whipped up a recipe for a delicious watermelon sherbet bombe cake. While National Watermelon Day may have passed, this fruit-inspired cake is the perfect treat for any summer party.

To make the tasty watermelon sherbet cake, you will need a blend of vanilla ice cream, raspberry sherbet and lime sherbet along with semi-sweet chocolate chips and some food coloring. To begin, beat the lime sherbet in a bowl until it is soft enough to spread and then add a few drops of green food coloring. In a separate bowl, beat the vanilla ice cream and then add a layer of vanilla to the lime sherbet.

Repeat the same process with the raspberry sherbet and mix with chocolate chips. After freezing the three layers for several hours, you are left with a delicious watermelon-shaped bombe cake. Appealing to watermelon fans, this dessert is healthier than store-bought sherbet treats and will leave those with a sweet tooth refreshed on a summer day.
