Watermelon has been on trend for several years now, with our first loves popping up back in 2014. Three years can be an eternity when it comes to trends and the internet. Is it possible that watermelon’s heyday is over? Possibly. But once you get a look at today’s post, I have a feeling you’ll agree with me. Watermelon is just as fresh and juicy as ever. Its shades of pink and red with that strong pop of green are vibrant, refreshing and absolutely perfect for summer! With everything from an incredible watermelon cake to watermelon cupcakes, cookies, macarons and more — we’re loving these 10 Watermelon Treats!
1. These adorable watermelon cookies by Patti Paige get an extra dose of fun when paired with pink flamingos and popsicles. Is it summer yet? See more of Patti’s cookie mania on Instagram, @bakedideas.
2. This incredible watermelon cake by Leslie Vigil popped up on IG last summer, inspiring a slew of bakers to make watermelon cakes. We’re dying to give this one a try using our striped buttercream tutorial! See more of Leslie’s cakes on Instagram, @_leslie_vigil_
