You all know how much I love me some cupcakes. Eating them, making them... you just can't go wrong with a cupcake. So when I spied this pin on Pinterest I knew exactly what I would be making for dessert for my mom on Mother's Day.
How adorable are they?! I almost wish there was a way to make them taste like watermelon. Perhaps there is. I have no idea what the recipe was for these as the link from the pin took me no where [womp, womp] so I did my own thing to make these adorable delectibles happen. Obviously mine don't look nearly as pretty as those in the original pin but I still think they turned out cute. Here's what I did:
I simply used white cake mix and prepared them as directed on the box, adding in pink food coloring and chocolate chips before popping them in the oven. For the frosting, I made my go-to cream cheese frosting and added green food coloring, just like I did for my pistachio pudding cupcakes. I set some chocolate chips aside and placed them on top of each cupcake after piping on the frosting. And there you have it!
I think these would be so much fun for a summer get together or a 4th of July party. I love the pink and the green and the "seeds". What Pinterest-inspired cupcakes have you made?
