I am now the mother of a 1-year-old! Happy birthday my little J-bird! I cannot believe how fast this year has flown by. It seems like just yesterday I was looking at that little baby face on ultrasound. She took her first steps yesterday, too. I'm thinking I can't afford to blink or I might miss something!
We had put the shopping off until the last minute for her party unfortunately, and we had to go get everything today. I really don't like Wal-Mart I have decided. I think there is some sort of time warp you have to pass through to go into the store, because when you leave it never fails that you have lost a couple of hours of your life! This trip was no different.
I decided I wanted to try something different for the cupcakes for the party, so I pulled up my Pinterest and looked up the Jello Tie Dye Fruity Cupcake recipe. Super easy recipe to follow. I was so excited to let my boys try them tonight because I thought it sounded so good. Note to self, your boys are picky, and they are not a good judge of what tastes good. So, the boys were not thrilled with it I could tell, but were reluctant to say they did not like them because they didn't want to hurt my feelings. I think the problem was the lime. I love key lime pie and I thought they were good and so did my husband.
You make the cake batter just like normal, and then you divide it into three bowls and add 3 different flavors of Jell-O mix.
Then you add a spoonful of each into 24 cupcake liners and bake.
And once cooled completely you pipe on your white icing. This is what my finished results looked like.
