Spring and summer months my favorite fruit is hands down, watermelon. I find myself trying watermelon flavored items cookies, candies, ice creams, etc. Needless to say when I spotted this Betty Crocker Watermelon Cupcakes boxed cake mix at Target I had to purchase it. I mean, what could be the worst thing that happened?
As with any boxed cake mix, whipping it together is easy breezy especially if youre skipping the eggs, water and oil and simply using diet soda or soda water. Once combined, the mixture definitely has a watermelon scent to it. My cupcakes baked up in 10 minutes.
In stores, Target was also selling a watermelon flavored frosting. Since I felt it would be too much of one flavor, I opted to use cool whip as a frosting. 2 tablespoons of cool whip per cupcake and they were perfect. They definitely have a watermelon flavor and scent to them. It has that Jolly Rancher flavor vibe to it, but not overwhelmingly artificial. There is watermelon seeds running throughout the batter but theyre more like black funfetti beads. Overall this is a unique and fun cake mix that is definitely good for a summer party/barbecue.
If the mix is made with diet soda or soda water (making 24 cupcakes) each cupcake is 65 calories or 2 points plus values. Or if you make giant cupcakes (12 servings) itd be 130 calories or 4 points plus values.
