Taking a Picnic or going to a Potluck is one of the best things about Summer. Laying a blanket on the grass and enjoying some Fried Chicken and Potato Salad or when the family gathers and everyone brings their favorite dish – so much fun! Let’s celebrate Summer, Memorial Day, Fourth of July and all those fun Potlucks with these Picnic Ant Cupcakes in a jar.

We all love Memorial Day…the official kick off to Summer, and with that comes Cook-outs, Potlucks and Picnics! And of course…Memorial Day Cupcakes! Over the last couple years, I’ve shared several Memorial Day Cupcakes, so for Cupcake Tuesday today, I thought I would put together a little round-up for you to pick your favorite and whip up a batch for your Memorial Day Party!
Let’s start with my favorites…
The Hamburger and Corn-on-the-Cob Cupcakes are perfect for any Picnic, and it wouldn’t be complete without Ants! Head on over and check out the full instructions including a How-to Video.
Next up are these fun Picnic Cupcakes with Printables from Charlotte at The Paper Cupcake. I shared them last year in the Cupcake Chronicles Newsletter.

Summertime is upon us here in Indiana. Do you have a Memorial Day Cookout to go to? I sure hope so, because I have the perfect Memorial Day Cupcakes for you.
How about Hamburgers with a side of Corn on the Cob? And it wouldn’t be a picnic without ants, right? Once again, I started with the ideas from the What’s New, Cupcake? and Hello, Cupcake books. I also found the hamburger cupcakes on Flickr.
Would you like to learn how to create these fun and easy cupcakes? Great, I made a How-to Video to help.
