Kool Aid Frosting-so many flavors=so many possibilities!
I while back I saw a pin on Pinterest for Frosting using Jello. It stuck in my head that I would use it the next time one of the kids needed cup cakes for something.
Fast forward to today. Grace, my youngest comes home from school and states that I need to make cupcakes for her class.
Sounds good to me. So off I go in search of the recipe for the Jello frosting. I found a few versions but the reviews were all over the place. I’m all about experimenting on kids but I can’t send something that might turn out awful. Then I found a tread of a forum and they say something about have you thought about using Kool-Aid?
More searching, more reading, then I found Infinitely Loopy. Reading her recipe over I knew this one had the best chance for success. It’s a buttercream.
This frosting went perfect with my White Butter Cake recipe.

I wasn’t thrilled with the color of the black cherry mix but let me tell you, the flavor! It was like drinking a glass of Kool-Aid on a really hot day. And the tang, sour, cherry flavor, it’s like an explosion in your mouth.
This recipe is a definite keeper and I can’t wait to try a few of the other flavors like blue-raspberry or the invisible ones. I can just imagine my kids biting into a cupcake with white icing and getting the surprise of grape or strawberry.
I’ve linked up at these great parties.
