I came across this image in my search for a watermelon cake to feature on the blog this month. Of course, it isn’t a cake, but a cupcake. That’s the next best thing, really. Better, actually. You get cake and icing without all the hassle of dealing with a fork and plate.
Like any good watermelon cake, the strength of these cupcakes lies in the attention to detail. The contrast between the dark green sprinkles and the light green icing simulates stripes. A thin layer of white icing represents the white inner rind. Then there’s the bright red interior with what I’m assuming are chocolate chip “seeds.”
All in all, it’s an outstanding effort by a true fan of my favorite fruit.
