I happened across this Kraft Jello video for how to make these cute tie dye cupcakes, and since we had a three birthday celebration coming up, I decided to make them.
They are a little more time consuming than regular cupcakes, but lots cuter.
Here is what you need:
1 White cake mix
3 different colors of jello, 1/4 cup of each dry mix
(The Kraft recipe site uses lemon, lime and strawberry, but I can’t see why it matters which kind, just pick the colors you like. I used raspberry, orange and lime)
1 container of frosting (Kraft says vanilla, but after using that, I think I would prefer a “fruity” flavor to go along with the fruity flavor of the jello)
Make up the cake mix according to the regular directions,
and divide the batter into three bowls equally.
Add 1/4 cup of a different color to each bowl and mix with a spoon.
Then spoon 2 Tablespoons full of each color into each cupcake liner. 1 cake mix makes 24 cupcakes.
I even used a book under the pan so it would tilt a bit and keep the colors from running together so much.
Be careful not to overfill, like I did a bit.
Bake according to package directions.
Let them cool and your are ready to frost.
This is what they look like inside.
These turned out so cute and fun, and everyone enjoyed them!
