I really wanted to only use fresh watermelon juice in the frosting, but the flavor didn’t “burst” enough for me. So I added in 1/2tsp of watermelon-cherry Koolaid mix (the dry stuff). If you have access to watermelon flavoring (I was too lazy to go to the store to buy it), that would be a great substitute as well.

We have been having a fantastic summer so far. I am so lucky to live near King’s Island, and have season passes. Between riding roller coasters and spending time at the water park, there is little time for much else in my day.
However, another favorite thing we enjoy in summer is watermelon. We eat a whole melon every week in the summer. Actually, I cut a melon in the morning and it’s gone by bedtime, but I don’t buy another one for a week, or at least until my next shopping trip.
However, I must say, these tasted perfect. The lime flavored cupcake was so slight, but just enough to give a good base flavor. The melted white chocolate hardened and gives a little texture to your bite. I loved these.
