This last weekend we decided to make easy yet cute cupcakes for church potluck. We were expecting more guests than normal and wanted to make a larger dessert. My Princess and I made mini sized cupcakes and regular sized cupcakes with the Jell-O poke method. We made Strawberry Lemon Cupcakes by using a lemon cake mix and strawberry Jell-O. and had a pretty good time doing it. We only at one mini cupcake each at the end too.

Baking time is in my Princess’ top 5 favorite things to do. So I let her do as much as she can, which includes trying her best to crack the eggs. We made the cupcakes according to the box of lemon cake mix.

We let them cool for 10 minutes and mixed the Jell-O with one cup of boiling hot water.

I poked the cupcakes with skinny fork because I didn’t have toothpicks. It worked. I actually should have poked them even more. (Reminder: keep the cupcakes in the pan. It makes pouring the Jell-O easier.)

We then placed the cupcakes in the refrigerator for 30 minutes before we decorated them. I frosted, my Princess shook the decorations on top. So easy. And very yummy!

    Those look so good, I’d love to make them, but we are doing a juice fast! I’ll plan on making them when we finish, that way I’ll have something to look forward to and my kids love to help me bake!!

      I only let her crack one egg and frost one cupcake. She didn’t do too well at 5 yet. You can see the one she decorated if you look close enough 😉 She loves to help though so I at least let her try. She can do the mixing and sprinkles and that makes her happy.

    Strawberry lemon sounds awesome! And I am so surprised by the Jello ingredient, I didn’t know you could use boxed Jello like this.
