If you’re looking for the perfect fruit to help you lose weight and satisfy your sweet tooth, watermelon is a perfect choice. Watermelon is 92% water and a simple way to have more water in your diet. Did you know you’re supposed to consume 8 eight ounce glasses of water every day? Because the human body is made up of 60% water it’s important to keep supplying that water. I bet you didn’t think that you’d be learning something factual when you opened this everyday cupcake blog. Cupcake blogs are all about sugar and spice and everything sweet. But hey, we’re here to help make your life a little easier.
This recipe is very simple. You can use any cupcake batter recipe that you choose by adding food coloring. Red velvet is a shoe in for the cupcake batter but vanilla with chocolate chips will create the same look. A plain batter with mini chocolate chips will simulate the seeds. Mix your batter with bright red food coloring. Your icing will need green food coloring to represent the rind. If you can find a recipe for how to incorporate a watermelon taste into your frosting then your green frosting will be more believable. Realistically, watermelon might had a thin layer of white frosting between the red and green to simulate the real deal.
What do you think about these cupcakes? They’d be great for a midsummer picnic. Instead of always bringing out the fruit and vegetables sometimes incorporate a sweet dessert into your picnic can add more fun. Surprise your kids after a successful week by giving them a cupcake instead of a fruit they hate. If you’re looking for a simple way to make watermelon cupcakes easier, use red cupcake wrappers and green cupcake wrappers. The red cupcake wrappers can have green frosting while the green cupcake wrappers have red cupcake frosting with mini chocolate chip frosting.
