What you’ll need: Makes 4 Mini Watermelon Cakes
Icing: Bon Appetit’s Royal Icing Recipe
  • 3 cups organic powdered sugar
  • 5 tablespoons meringue powder (instead of raw egg)
  • Cold water
Directions:
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  • Grab 2 sweet beet cake mix pouches and 2 vanilla bean cake mix pouches out from your organic baking kits
  • Grab 2 small mixing bowls, and add the cake mix into the bowls. One bowl for sweet beet and one for vanilla bean
  • Add 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter into each of the bowls
  • Add in 4 tablespoons of 2% milk into each of the bowls and whisk well
  • Finely chop your spinach and add it into the vanilla bean batter. Blend well.
  • Next, you will grab 4 biodegradable baking cups out from your Healthyish baking kits and lightly spray them with cooking spray
  • Evenly divide the batter amongst the four baking cups
  • Bake for 12 – 14 minutes – once fully baked, allow your cakes to cool

  • While the mini cakes are cooling we will make our royal icing
  • In a medium sized mixing bowl, add together the powdered sugar and meringue powder
  • Next, you will slowly incorporate the cold water until the icing forms stiff peaks
  • Split the white icing between two bowls – but be sure to reserve some of the white icing for later
  • Add the beet juice to one bowl, mix well
  • Add the matcha powder to the other bowl, mix well

  • Now that the cakes are cool you will top the sweet beet cakes with the royal icing that has been naturally dyed with beet juice
  • And you will top the spinach cakes with the royal icing that has been dyed with the matcha powder

  • Grab a small circular cookie cutter and cut the center out of all four mini cakes
  • You will take the round portion from the sweet beet cake and gently insert it into the outer portion of the spinach cake
  • Using a piping bag, gently squeeze the remaining white icing in-between the spinach cake and the beet cake to form a watermelon rind
  • Finally, you will top the mini watermelon cakes with chocolate chips or chocolate sprinkles to give the effect of watermelon seeds
