Jello Swirl Cupcakes with Jello Buttercream-So many flavors, so many possibilities!
And I love the colors it comes in.
And kids think it’s fun.
And I needed to make cupcakes for school, again. Don’t get me wrong, I love making treats for the kids, just 3 weeks in a row and I run out of creativity.
So I’m in the bathroom reading my EveryDay with Rachel Ray Magazine. Don’t judge, you do it too. It’s the only place a mom can grab 5 minutes of piece and quiet, at least in my house. Sometimes I go in there just to hide. Anyway, I spot this add for Tie-Dye Cupcakes by Jello. Cute, I’d even dog eared the page at some point. Sometimes life is just meant to be easy.
Now just to be safe, in case the jello part of the cupcakes wasn’t that great, I decided on a swirl, with white cake mix. But I didn’t need to worry, the jello part tastes good. And the Jello Buttercream, yum!
Another keeper and an easy go to recipe if you just need something fun!
Jello Swirl Cupcakes
Look at the pretty color.
Don’t you love it?
Now time to dish it up. Spoon some white, then some color, then more white, then more color. Do not overfill, about 2/3 full should be good.
Awe, looks so pretty. Just a note, you’ll have more colored batter than white batter so keep that in mind when spooning.
To get the swirl on the frosting I followed this tutorial from Our Best Bites. Worked great!
