My husband just asked me, “Aren’t watermelons red, green and black?”

Well, maybe in REAL life, but in a beautiful, colorful, cake decorating world I prefer pink and green — just because I can.

Watermelon Cupcakes Use Mini Chocolate Chips

So that’s why these watermelon cupcakes are pink and green — aren’t they cute?

Plus I love adding chocolate chips to anything!

Using these bright colors really contrasts the dark-colored chocolate chips to make the perfect picture watermelon seeds!

Cutest watermelon seeds on earth — not to mention the yummiest!

Bake Watermelon Cupcakes with Your Kids

I love baking with my kids!

I started baking with my kids when my oldest was only three years old.

Now he’s 15 and I can rarely cook or bake in the kitchen alone.

Once the kids hear me clanging around in the kitchen, they start running and grab stirring spoons, ingredients and jump in and help.

Instructions
  1. Mix cake mix, water, vegetable oil and eggs according to the cake mix box. Before mixing, it looked blue but once you start mixing, it turns to vibrant green!

  3. Pour cupcake mix into a measuring cup for easy pouring. Pour the cupcake mix into the cupcake pan, making sure not to fill all the way to the top.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees. - Scoop the pink icing into an icing bag or a ziploc bag. I used a Wilton Tip 1M to pipe on the frosting on top of the cupcake. - Frost each cupcake with the pink icing and then put on mini chocolate chips for "seeds".
  5. Let cupcakes cool.
