Tie Dye Cupcakes

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.
