We've made these watermelon cupcakes twice now and they're on the menu for a birthday in a couple weeks...in other words, they've been a big hit!

When little DIY (my 10-year old daughter) requested Watermelon Cake, I did a little searching online and found this recipe that I adapted for cupcakes.

The recipe uses a white cake mix* and a package of watermelon jello mix*.  I used Jolly Rancher Watermelon Jello mix, which made the cake kind of tangy and tart...a great contrast with the dark chocolate chips.



At the time, I only had regular sized chips in my pantry; since then I've made these Watermelon Cupcakes with mini chocolate chips (both in the batter and on top of the icing). The chips resemble watermelon seeds and look so cute!

I made my own Cream Cheese Frosting and colored it very pale green to resemble the watermelon rind. Do yourself a favor and make your own cream cheese frosting! It's only a couple ingredients (including butter of course), but the taste is far superior to the packaged frosting and really sets your cupcakes apart and adds to the homemade-over-store-bought-taste!

Baked in red gingham cupcake wrappers*, not only are these cupcakes adorable, they're really good! They're moist and not overly sweet; they have the tangy-ness from the cream cheese frosting and the tartness from the watermelon flavoring.

If fact, although we're not 'cake people' at our home, we all gave these a thumbs up!

There's something about the colors of these cupcakes that just says 'summer'!
