I would have held off posting these had I known about a cupcake challenge!...but these are for Hoosier Homemade's Cupcake Tuesday Cupcake Challenge.
When I think of summer I really do think watermelon really represents so well. These are watermelon cake with watermelon cream cheese icing with pieces of chocolate candy melts for seeds.
- 1 box white cake mix
- 1 (3 ounce) package of watermelon jello
- 1 and 1/3 cups cubed watermelon
- 3 egg whites
- 1 tablespoon of oil
- 6 ounces of cream cheese
- 1/4 c butter
- 1/4 c watermelon juice
- 3+ cups confectioner's sugar
the green wrappers are a must for the full effect....I also used enough confectioner's sugar until the icing was pipeable and even that was hard with the 98+ degree weather on the east coast....there really is nothing better than watermelon in the summertime...!
...and if you can't do this...
sharing these at tidy mom!
