Sunday Suppers: Watermelon Cupcakes

Sunday Suppers

I wanted to make a summer themed treat and I saw some great pics of Watermelon cupcakes on Pinterest, however, a lot of them called for various flavors of Jello and I wasn’t sure I wanted them to actually be watermelon flavored, so I took my own twist on the recipe.

I made vanilla cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.  All I needed was food coloring and some chocolate morsels to make the cupcakes look like watermelons 🙂

Recipe:

  • Any vanilla cake or cupcake recipe (homemade or from a box) I used the one below
  • IMG_7702Cream cheese frosting:
    • 1 block of cream cheese
    • 1 stick of butter
    • tsp vanilla
    • 3 cups (or more if needed) powdered sugar
