Watermelon Bombe

A decade ago, we were all dancing to Tom Jones' hit Sex Bomb. Guess what? This Watermelon Bombe by Martha Stewart makes us dance these days. With a pistachio rind with vanilla ice cream, watermelon sorbet, and chocolate chip wafers, you'll never get them to eat a real watermelon again.
