watermelon cake toppers are my fave

watermelon cupcake toppers

I love, love, love all of the party inspiration on You Are My Fave, so I wanted to create a kid-friendly project that would be great for birthday parties or summer get-togethers. And since I’m kind of obsessed with watermelon at the moment (case and point), I thought watermelon cupcake toppers would be fun to make. To give them more of a playful vibe and make them more exciting for kids, I used bright colors and cut the shapes out of foam sheets. So easy!

Here’s what you need to make your own:
-Foam Sheets (which you can buy on Amazon or at a local craft store)
-Scissors
-Craft Glue
-Wood Skewers or Lollipop Sticks

Start by cutting out a half circle from one of your foam sheets. You can do this by tracing a small bowl and then cutting the circle in half or just free handing it. Then cut a smaller half circle, from a different color foam sheet. This will be the inner ‘melon’. Next, cut some small seed shapes from foam.

Once all the cutting is finished, it’s time to start glueing everything together. Using a basic craft or school glue (strong glues like super glue may eat through the foam, which is why I’m recommending basic craft glue). Glue the smaller melon shape onto the larger melon shape and then glue the foam seeds on in a haphazard pattern.

Once the glue is completely dry, flip your melons over and glue a short wooden skewer or lollipop stick onto the back. Wait for it to dry. Then, poke into a cupcake or cake and you’re ready to celebrate summer.

Apparently I missed National Watermelon Day which was August 3rd (man, the things you let slip when you have a newborn..) but I’m still awfully fond of this summer fruit.

frozen watermelon slush is my fave

frozen watermelon slush

There is little in life that disappoints me more than when I bite into a cookie and realize it’s oatmeal raisin not oatmeal chocolate chip and when I spend minutes examining watermelons only to choose a mushy one out. So I was super happy when my sister told me about this slush where you can use up that so-so watermelon simply by freezing it.

frozen watermelon slush

To make the slush you need:
– 4 c frozen watermelon cubes
– 1/2 c lemon juice
– 1/2 c sugar (I use less)
– 1/2 c strawberries (fresh or frozen)
– 1 1/2 c water or soda

Put all ingredients in blender and mix until slush like. It’s a perfect compliment to your summer barbecues and the answer to your watermelon fails (and don’t tell me to tap it and listen to the tone).

Watermelon is my fave. Seriously. If I was on death row and was asked to request my final meal, there’s a good chance I’d ask for a big bowl of cut up watermelon. Yes, that would be just fine by me. Don’t you find it to be perfectly summery? And it’s also perfectly pink. Now I ask you, dear You Are My Fave readers, what’s better than that?

For the third day of summer giving tie a ribbon around a mini watermelon and instruct the recipient to grab a spoon and dig in. Ryan and I both enjoyed our half bowl last night for dinner.

Thanks to my friend who shared this idea with me, all of my summer beverages will have a little added watermelon flavor. So much cooler than the straw in the orange idea.

Congrats to Crystal, the winner of the Chinny LuLu giveaway.

Have the most pleasant of weekends.
