Do you know if this would work with Apple juice too? This time of year I don't know where I could get a good melon

Love sour candy! Favorited and voted for it. Just curious because I did some watermelon cupcakes (ible coming soon) and the watermelon flavor from the first batch didn't taste strong at all and I ended up using a flavor enhancer, does this taste like a strong waterline flavor?
Bhawya (author)  tofugami9 months ago

yes, you can feel the strong essence of watermelon. Because I just added watermelon, water and citric acid. In cup cakes, it has many ingredients like flour, eggs and all.. So it s hard to taste the watermelon flavour. Thank you so much for the vote. I am waiting to see ur cup cake ible :) have a great day..

Thank you for the prompt reply. That makes complete sense. I can't wait to try them. I just need to go find some citric acid. :-)

My ible is up on the watermelon cupcake.
