Princess watermelon Carvings are a fun, unexpected and healthy way to make a “cake” for girl’s birthdays. Especially during summer when watermelons are plentiful. You can use this ideas to surprise and delight your birthday girl.
A while back I published a blog post with an idea for making Princess watermelon carvings using a Barbie doll with a carved watermelon for her skirt. Since that time, I’ve received quite a few more photos from my students showing their creative take on the idea. I’ll share them with you here.

This first Princess watermelon was created by one of my past students who has since become a professional carver.

Watermelon Barbie Cake for my goddaughter’s 6th birthday. I had lots of fun with this carving.
I really enjoy carving and so grateful for your lessons. They have really paid off in helping me explore my artistic side. It would be an honor to have you share my work with your readers!!!
The top layer of skirt is carved in the shape of leaves, the outer layer has large flower petals. And the center, inner layer is carved with small petal shapes. Iris’ doll’s came with a bodice of plastic molded to the doll. Many Barbie dolls are available with molded tops.
