Watermelon "Cupcakes" and Strawberries Playing Hide and Seek

Last day for BSI. Don't forget to email my your watermelon recipe!



I saw this on The National Watermelon Promotion Board website and thought it was just about the cutest idea ever!



I used a very small juice glass to cut 1 1/2 inch round from a piece of watermelon that I had sliced about an inch thick.

Then, whipped up some pineapple cream cheese frosting. Using 1/3 cup crushed pineapple, 1 package of cream cheese and 3-4 cups powdered sugar. This will frost at least 2 dozen "cupcakes". I didn't make that many because I wanted to save part of the frosting for another recipe.

The frosting needs to be on the thick side and everything needs to be nice and cold. I think it would even be a good thing to stick these in the freezer for a while to keep the frosting from sliding.



These would be great for a kid's summer pool party or birthday party!



I also wanted to share a photo that I took of my little garden strawberries. Tell me, is anything playing Hide and Seek in your garden right now? :0)

I was about to make something with watermellon for you, but then discovered my father finished it all. grrrr...
I have some zucchini playing hide and seek, they're still so small and tiny, as if they were refusing to grow too quickly and be eaten

Very clever to turn it into a cupcake. Healthy and delicious all that the same time.

That's so cool you have a little strawberry garden. Fresh picked off the vine. That's so awesome!!

Those are fabulous! One of those rare, precious times that people will appreciate the healthy version of an unhealthy treat :-)

There's a national watermelon promotion board?

Your strawberry picture is adorable! My strawberries are playing hide and seek also...let's hope they are good at hiding from the slugs.

I love this! So adorable! I haven't even bought a watermelon in quite a few years until this weekend and my daughter tried it for the first time and she loved it (her #2 fav fruit now after mango, she says). I will be making these for her tomorrow as I still have some watermelon left!

BarbaraJean said...

What an adorable idea!! I've never seen anything like it. Love it!

mrsb said...

Oh, how cute! I can see taking these in a container in a cooler, with maybe a can of whipped cream instead of frosting so you can top them off at the last minute! What a fun idea!
