It’s summer! Picnics, potlucks, and parties! Need some ideas? Make Watermelon Cupcakes. They’re cute and easy to make using the Funfetti Vibrant Green cake mix. This recipe uses premade frosting but you can substitute your favorite frosting recipe if you prefer homemade (I do!)

Scoop the pink icing into an icing bag or a Ziploc bag. I used a Wilton Tip 1M to pipe on the frosting on top of the cupcake.
