If you have been reading my blog for any time now you know how much we love to bake. With spring here and summer not far behind we love to get in all the baking we can before it gets to hot here. Even then we like to break out quick and easy mixes that we can whip up in a flash before it gets hot outside. We were super excited to be able to try a new mix from Betty Crocker perfect for spring baking and of course eating! It’s Betty Crocker’s new watermelon cupcakes!
If you are a watermelon lover like we are you will enjoy these. The cupcakes are so easy that Sammie can practically make them by herself! Yes, all that baking together is paying off. She cracked the eggs, measured the water and oil and mixed them according to the directions. I loved how they smelled when they were mixed up. Sammie had to taste it. Of course I shared she should not have raw batter. Bla, bla mom!
Then we put them into a pre-lined cupcake pan. We found the cutest red with white polka dot liners. I’m obsessed with cute cupcake liners and even have a cute giant pickle jar full of the extras. Any way, back to our baking. Into the oven they went, about a short 15 minutes wait time.
They were perfect and we let them cool. Don’t you just hate waiting? Once they were cool we frosted them with Betty Crocker’s frosting. And even decided to add some sour watermelon candies to the top.
These cupcakes are fun, easy to make and taste like watermelon. They have cute little watermelon looking seeds inside. My kids have never liked frosting! Can you imagine!?? But, the Mr. and I enjoy our cupcakes frosted. Frosted or not your sure to enjoy making and eating these watermelon cupcakes. I saved you one!
