In the spirit of watermelon season and summer not too far away, I thought I’d share a recipe I found for Watermelon Cupcakes. No, that’s not a typo! Watermelon Cupcakes. Because who doesn’t love watermelon? Wait wait wait.. The more appropriate question, who doesn’t love cupcakes? What’s better than a delicious, easy to make, pretty to look at dessert that you and the kids will love!

a few drops of pink food coloring, optional
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 cups of powdered sugar

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
 2. Line 2 (12-count) muffin tins with paper liners.  Set aside.

Or, if you’d like to make it a little easier I just came across this pre-made Watermelon cupcake mix made by Betty Crocker. I haven’t tried these so I can’t say that they’ll be AS good as the recipe above, but they could be worth checking out.
Amazon sells the mix and frosting together! You can check it out here if you’d like! 🙂
