Easy Watermelon Cake Recipe perfect for summer celebrations
While browsing at the store the other day I noticed the clearance shelf with these watermelon cake mixes. Oldest Twin loves watermelon. And I know it’s a quintessential summer experience or something. But no matter how much I try, I just don’t like eating watermelon.
However, I do like some watermelon flavored candy. And at the least I figured the cake would be a fun treat for Oldest Twin and Littlest (the only other person in our house who likes watermelon). So I put the box in my cart.
It sat on my pantry shelf for a couple weeks, but I finally decided to be brave and give it a try.
The box does say cupcake mix, but I’m a rebel and made mine into a bundt cake. Then I made a batch of my favorite homemade buttercream frosting. With plenty of green food coloring.
Luckily it tastes like watermelon candy flavor. And that is the kind of watermelon that I do like.
I’ve also been inspired to make a cake that only looks like watermelon. My plan is to use a yellow cake recipe and dye it red, toss in some mini chocolate chips to look like the seeds, and topped again by some green food coloring.
