  • 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, while I was filling the pan.
  • Be careful not to overfill.
  • Bake according to package directions.
  • Let them cool and your are ready to frost.
