3. For a summery off-the-rind treat, freeze these juicy watermelon ice pops from Foodess that swap in chocolate chips to give the look of watermelon seeds.

4. No matter where you take your first bite, it’ll land somewhere over the rainbow. La Receta de la Felicidad bends colorful candy ribbons into arcs for these whimsical rainbow cupcakes.

5. If you hoard cookie butter spread like you do Nutella, YumSugar’s Speculoos icebox cake is a creamy, dreamy alternative to eating it right out of the jar.
