Tiny Watermelon Obsession

And by tiny, I mean ginormous. And instead of obsession, I'll opt for inspiration. For some reason, I can't get enough of the super cute watermelon creativity all over.

You may recall the post where I made these mini cupcakes. Check out this flickr pic of so many more insanely cute watermelon cupcakes. Oh, the possibilities!

I considered making cookies in the same fashion, but decided dying dough green and more frosting pink would probably be an overdose on my ingestion quota of the super healthy food color dyes. ;)

Instead, I made these watermelon cake pops. First cake pop try ever!

I saw awesome watermelon waffles from Kelli at Random Thoughts of a Supermom. And had to make my own (for dinner of course) while my friend Jo was visiting!

And for a little more inspiration from around the web...

Wilton never disappoints, with this "less frosting is more" version of a watermelon cake.

And, a twist on the idea of watermelon cupcakes, except that they are not cake, but actual watermelon in cupcake liners, courtesy of Alexis from Jaco'lyn Murphy.

Super adorable summer time treat: sherbert stuffed limes made by Katie at This Chick Cooks.

Oh geez. I'll stop soon. Promise. But first, check out this watermelon lemonade from one of my favorite bloggers, Alison at Oopsy Daisy! I wish I had super cute stemware to make it look awesomely watermelony. Mmmm!

If you simply can't wait to carve pumpkins, try this: watermelon carving! Rachel shows you how to step by step on her blog, Sun Scholars. I can only imagine what a hit this would be at your next potluck. Doesn't look too hard either.

And stepping away from food, look at this adorable watermelon wreath from Mel at The Crafty Scientist! I absolutely love her blog. It is so helpful and super well organized. Plus, she started her blog about the same time I did and is a PhD student. She's quite amazing!

I can't believe how uhhhhdorable this watermelon skirt is! She posted a tutorial, too! Yippee! (The photo below has pins in the seeds still. It was the only one that didn't have her little girl in it. Go check it out to see the full skirt in action on her cute little model!)

Too cute! Okay, I'll be done. Go ahead and share a link in a comment if you have watermelon inspiration to share! I want to see!


  1. Ah! I'll take 2 of each food, thanks. :) The only watermelon I have sitting around is the bowl of old rinds that I need to take out to the compost. And unfortunately that's more inspirational for the fruit flies than it is for me...
