JELL-O Lemon Flavor Gelatin
JELL-O Lime Flavor Gelatin
JELL-O Strawberry Flavor Gelatin
1 (16 ounce) can
ready-to-spread vanilla frosting
These turned out so pretty! Next time I will use maybe a tablespoon and a half as two tablespoons of each batter was too much-came over the top of the cups and spread out on the pan. I used part of the batter for mini cupcakes...used a teaspoon of each batter and baked at 325 for 10 minutes. The mini's are so cute!
My 2 year old boys loved helping to make these...and eat them too! The biggest disappoinment was that the cake stuck to the cupcake liners...maybe due to the high sugar content?? Cupcake turned into crumbs when I tried to take the liner off. Might try with less jello next time.
These are super cute & yummy! I used Pillsbury Pink Lemonade frosting & it paired perfect with these! 2 tablespoons is way too much! I didn't measure, but I would guess I used 1 or 1 1/2 tablespoons of each.
After reading the reviews, I was really hesitant on making these. I didn't want crummy or gummy cupcakes but I gave it a shot. I was pleasantly suprised as they turned out great! I was really precautious though, and didn't put a whole 1/4 cup of jello in each bowl, maybe a half of a 1/4 or less. I really wanted the color and not necessarily the flavor, but even with that little amount, they did taste fruity! I also messed up on the colors, I went to the store after meeting some friends at the bar, and I picked up orange, raspberry and lemon...my bad but hey they still turned out great. This time I will get the colors right and buy lime, I am making these for a potluck next week and I'm looking forward to it!
A friend made these and I thought they were so yummy I went home and made a batch! My son loved them! We used cool-whip instead of frosting and it was delicious!
I would like to start by saying we love poke cakes and thought this would make a nice portable version to take to school..And it was ! After reading the reviews I was nervous that they would be crumbly and the teacher would hate me, so I bought all name brand. Duncan Hines Classic white cake mix and Jell-o brand gelatin. They turned out great ! I double the recipe and used one small box of gelatin for each color...I only used about 1 tablespoon of each batter and they didn't overflow. We topped with whipped cream like a poke cake and they were a hit !! I tried just lemon/lime they were very good. I also tried strawberry and lemon ( strawberry lemonade) also very good but for the kids we did all three !! Hope you enjoy !!
These were, of course a little more time consuming, but well worth it. My kids gave these two thumbs up!
You could easily use green and red jello for Christmas cupcakes.....and on and on.
The texture was a bit different due to the jello, but overall, the taste was wonderful.
I'll definitely make these again!
My kids and I thought these were wonderful! I only added enough dry gelatin to color and flavor the cake, and they turned out perfectly! Not gummy or crumbly at all!
