  • Add more powder sugar 1/2 C at a time.
  • Test to make sure that the frosting can make and hold a stiff peak.
  • When frosting is ready, add several drops of green gel food coloring.( Color should be a pastel green  color to look like a rind of a watermelon.)  Stir well to blend both the extract and the food coloring throughout the frosting.
  • Scoop the frosting into a pastry bag with a large frosting tip and frost your cupcakes.
