“Festive 4th ” JELL-O Cupcakes

IMGP8269

I was going to call these “Patriotic” JELL-O cupcakes, but when I could not find my recipe for JELL-O cake, I looked online and lo and behold, JELL-O had already titled a recipe that way. I guess it makes sense that they would cover the holidays.

So, I had to come up with a new name.

I love a challenge.

However I did not want it to be a huge challenge so I did not do any more searching to see if this name was used somewhere. I am at a “challenge limit” for the day.

JELL-O cake was big on the food scene when I was growing up. My children, however, have never had a JELL-O cake.

Sad. Just sad.

You cannot go through life without JELL-O cake so I will rectify that.

Here and now.

These “Festive 4th” Cupcakes would be a great gift for your 4th of July celebrations and a great way for me to introduce my children to JELL-O cake, complete with Cool-Whip frosting – the whole shebang. (I just learned how to spell that word so I find reasons to use it now.)

I also made a “Grown-Up” version, a little more sophisticated, perhaps.

When I was a kid, we always made a whole JELL-O cake. There is nothing wrong with that. I decided to make cupcakes because I thought that cupcakes might make an easier gift option since these would be at your summer picnics and parties, in my mind any ways.

Cupcakes to go!
