Today I am going to show you how to make these incredible cupcakes.

What you need

  • 1 pkg. (2-layer size) white cake mix
  • 1/4 cup dry Jell-O Lemon Jelly Powder (1/2 of 85-g pkg.)
  • 1/4 cup dry Jell-O Lime Jelly Powder (1/2 of 85-g pkg.)
  • 1/4 cup dry Jell-O Strawberry Jelly Powder (1/2 of 85-g pkg.)
  • 1-1/2 cups ready-to-spread vanilla frosting 

How To Make It

  1. Prepare cake batter as directed on package; divide evenly into 3 bowls.
  2. Stir different flavour dry jelly mix into batter in each bowl. 
  3.  Alternately spoon batters into 24 paper-lined muffin cups, adding about 2 Tbsp. of each batter to each cup. 
  4.  Bake as directed on package for cupcakes. 
  5.  Cool completely.Pipe frosting onto cupcakes.  

How To Put Frosting On

Insert desired decorating tip in pastry bag. Fold down top of pastry bag about halfway, forming a cuff. Spoon enough frosting into bag to fill halfway. Unfold cuffed top and twist bag until it meets level of frosting in bag. To pipe, hold bag firmly and squeeze from top of bag, keeping bag twisted to prevent frosting from leaking out from top of bag. If you don't have a pastry bag, you can use a resealable plastic bag instead. Spoon frosting into bag, then cut piece off one corner of bag. Twist top of bag as directed, then use to pipe frosting onto cupcakes.

How To Use The Remaining Dry Jelly Powder

Combine all leftover dry jelly powder in medium bowl. Add 1-1/2 cups boiling water; stir 2 min. until powders are completely dissolved. Stir in 1-1/2 cups cold water. Refrigerate several hours or until firm. Sprinkle jelly powder on to cupcakes.

That is how you make these Tie-Dye Cupcakes.
