Waltermelon Cupcake

Waltermelon Cupcake

Today is the day most kids are heading back to school, which had me reminiscing about this amazing group of kids.  Back in April, I work with the 2nd graders from the Creative Youth Center to come up with a new flavor for our pint of the month and boy did they deliver.  The kindest, most creative, and welcoming bunch of young people.  With their help, I was pushed to attempt a flavor I didn't think would be possible, as a natural flavor; watermelon.  The process was organic, we discussed everyones favorite fruit, treat, candy, etc.  Almost everyone mentioned watermelon.  And then when the Walter started to write his new flavor on his paper, and wrote Waltermelon, that was it.  I couldn't resist.  Waltermelon, or watermelon, it was.  My mind was made up before I even left the Creative Youth Center and it was certainly set in stone after Walter put on a break dancing show for us, the boy knew the key to my heart.  Definitley the highlight of the year, until I went and sat and watch the kids read from their publish book of poems.  Unbelievalbe.  The coolest kids you will ever meet.
