  • 1 medium seedless watermelon
  • Whipped cream
  • Raspberries
  • Whole mint leaves
  • Foil cupcake liners


  1. Slice up your watermelon into 2-3-inch thick slices.
  2. Use a cookie cutter to cut circles out of each slice. Optionally, cut down the sides of the watermelon to make them smaller on the bottom for a real “cupcake” look.
  3. Place each watermelon circle in a cupcake liner, ideally foil liners as they’ll be more durable against the moisture from the watermelon.
  4. When ready to serve, give each watermelon “cupcake” a dollop of whipped cream, then place a raspberry and some mint leaves on top. Enjoy immediately.
