Celebrate summer with these clever and creative cupcakes. They'll be a hit with kids of all ages!
Summer always gets me excited. Swimming in the pool on hot afternoons. Grilling dinner in the backyard. Eating watermelon! I love the pretty pink and green colors of that fresh fruit. So I thought to make Watermelon Push-It-Up Cakes.
They are a great treat for kids, who will have fun eating them. Adults will love that the push-up cakes are a foolproof, portable snack for picnics in the park and backyard barbecues.
Begin by mixing up a white cake mix according to the box directions. Add some red food coloring and some mini chocolate chips. Bake in a mini muffin tin; cool completely.
Now stir some green food coloring into a can of Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting.
Using a piping bag (or a resealable plastic bag with the corner cut out), pipe a little bit of the frosting into the bottom of the push-up pop container. Add a cupcake on top, followed by some more frosting.
Add a second cupcake and then another layer of frosting.
Top the whole thing with a few mini chocolate chips. (They mimic the seeds.)
If not serving right away, put on the lids for easy storage and transportation.
