Tis the season of all things hearts & pink! Is it strange that I love all things Valentines Day related, candy hearts, Kiddie school valentines parties, all things hearts shaped!!!!!! Ahhhhh makes me so excited thinking about all the fabulousness, yet I kinda get annoyed with the actual day! Pink and hearts are the best things ever, but I hate the idea that one day out of the year you're suppose to be all extra mushy because the card companies say so. So I guess you can say I celebrate Valentine's Day more for the fun colors than the mush.
While on my weekly trip to Walmart last week, yes you heard correct, unfortunately Antarctica is a Target-less area, I just happened to walk by a display of heart shaped cookie cutters! Obviously since I just have to buy all things heat shaped, into my cart they went!
I really didn't know what to use the heart shaped cookie cutters for, I suck at baking & pancakes ugh.... 50/50 chance I can actually flip the thing and have it still resemble the shape it's suppose to be. Yes even with the cutter. I'm not lying when I say I don't have a baking or anything dough related gene. So in my kitchen drawer they went.
Then Sunday when I was preparing brunch for my Lil'fam it hit me! I could totally slice the watermelon up into hearts. I make Watermelon Cupcakes ( a slice of watermelon with frosting and sprinkles) that I use my funky circle cutters for.... I can totally make heart watermelon chunks with my new and adorable heart cutter!
Easy Peasy to do! Just take a slice of watermelon and poke the cutter threw! Not going to lie though, you do end up wasting a lot of the watermelon since you are cuting perfectly shaped hearts, but does it really matter since this is the cutest watermelon you have ever seen ;-)
So next time you want to spice up your fruit cocktail or want to impress your friends with your food craftiness, I hope you remember this post and totally blow them away with watermelon hearts! Totally Instagram worthy of you ask me ;-)
