We love a fresh bowl of Ambrosia Fruit Salad at picnics during the summer months. I remember it well when my mother used to make it. All us kids would just eat it all up. The other day I had some at a party. I had the thought..."Wonder how this would taste on a cupcake"?? AWESOME!! Need I say more?

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
The light fluffy ambrosia salad on top of a simple cupcake is simply delicious. These are cute, cool and look almost too pretty to eat but grab a fork and dig in. The cherry on top is the perfect touch.These cupcakes would be fabulous for a summer or spring potluck. What a fabulous idea!
