Cheers to Jello Cupcakes

Jello Cupcakes and I are secret friends. We sneak off and play fun games like “peel the wrapper off” and “top me with frosting.”  No one knows that under all that frosting and sprinkles lies a wonderful burst of jello.  It’s my secret, until you take the first bite, then I’ve shared my secret friend with you. Enjoy these special cupcakes at your next party or potluck or secret meeting with your best friend.
