Adorable & Delicious Watermelon Cupcakes

Posted by Julie Ryan Evans on July 7, 2012 

Watermleon CupcakesIf you're looking for a perfect summer desert, look no further than these watermelon cupcakes. They're tangy, creamy, delicious, and nothing short of darling.

They're great for picnics, barbecues, or any other warm-weather occasion where you want to impress without going to too much work. From Shugary Sweets, the recipe contains real watermelon, which sounds a little strange (and is optional), but tastes delicious when combined with the creamy frosting.

Watermelon Cupcakes

For the Cupcake:

  • 1 box (18.25oz) white cake mix
  • 1 box (3oz) lime Jell-o (not sugar free)
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 1/4 cup water

For the Topping:

  • 8oz white chocolate, melted
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Koolaid powdered mix (watermelon-cherry Twist flavor)
  • 3-4 Tbsp watermelon puree (see note below) OR milk
  • 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips

For the cake, add cake mix, Jell-o, egg whites, oil and water in a mixing bowl. Beat 2 minutes until blended. Fill cupcake liners 1/2 full and bake in a 350 degree oven for 15-18 minutes. Do not overbake. Allow to cool completely.

When cooled, spread melted white chocolate over top of each cupcake. While that sets, begin your frosting

To make watermelon puree, blend about 1/2 cup of fresh watermelon in a blender until smooth. If you want to substitute milk, that will work too, but I liked having some fresh watermelon in the frosting!

In mixer, beat butter with powdered sugar, Koolaid mix and watermelon puree (or milk). Beat for about 3-5 minutes until fluffy and smooth.

Using a decorator bag and tip (I used 6S), pipe frosting on each cupcake and immediately sprinkle with chocolate chips. ENJOY!
