Today is #CupcakeLoversDay!  To celebrate, I have teamed up with a great group of bloggers to bring you new recipes and posts all about cupcakes.  Special thanks to Valentina at The Baking Fairy for organizing this event.

I'm sharing my Watermelon Themed Cake and Cupcakes.  They are the perfect treat for your summer parties!  Follow my instructions below to make your own!

Since today is all about cupcakes....let's start with those instructions.  Here is what you will need:

1 batch of chocolate cupcakes - recipe or box mix that you prefer
1 recipe of vanilla buttercream frosting
green food coloring
pink food coloring
mini chocolate chips

  1. Color half of the frosting recipe with green food coloring.  
  2. Color the other half with pink food coloring.
  3. Pipe a ring of the green frosting around the top of the cupcake.
  4. Fill in the rest of the top of the cupcake with pink frosting.
  5. Sprinkle with mini chocolate chips.

Now for the cake.....

4-layer cake (I made mine with 2 boxed cake mixes), leveled
the rest of the green and pink frosting from cupcakes
mini chocolate chips

  1. Layer the cakes with green frosting spread between each layer.
  2. Pipe green frosting around the outer edge of each layer, bottom, and top.
