"Say Watermelon..." "....Waterlemon?"

I did this post in honor of my favorite little boy, Nathan. Every time he says watermelon it comes out waterlemon. It is one of the cutest things I have ever heard. I found this idea on Wilton's website. I felt it went perfectly with the summer ideas i've had going on. I used a strawberry cupcake because it was pink and went with the color scheme. I made the Wilton butter cream frosting again and colored it using Leaf Green and Christmas Red food coloring from Wilton. The green is piped with piping tip #3 and the white is piped with #5. The seeds are mini chocolate chips turned upside down. Due to the summer heat and my kitchen window offering the only good light in the house, the frosting looks kind of melty :/ They're still delicious though :) I really liked the way the green has white spots. It looks very realistic. Tell me what you think.


  1. I think they look great! Nathan would love them forsure!!

  2. Looks awesome. Nathan loved this and said waterlemon like twenty times! I do love the way the green looks, totally cool.
