Strawberry Jello Poke Cupcakes start with a white cake mix but are jazzed up when you poke holes in them and pour on some strawberry Jello. It makes for a really moist, flavorful, and pretty cupcake!
I did a lot of baking this past weekend but these Strawberry Jello Poke Cupcakes were definitely the prettiest thing I made!
Strawberry Jello Poke Cupcakes
This strawberry jello poke cupcakes recipe is adapted from an old one my mom’s friend makes.
She usually makes hers in cake form, but we’re making them into easy cupcakes.
You could also use raspberry or cherry Jello and keep with the pink theme. I frosted with my favorite fluffy buttercream but it traditionally has a Cool Whip topping.
I don’t know if you’ve noticed the influx of pink ribbons lately, but October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Odds are, you personally know someone affected by breast cancer. My grandma had it and my aunt is currently recovering from a major surgery because of it.
To raise awareness, KitchenAid partnered with the Susan G. Komen foundation for their Cook for the Cure campaign. I may not be up to a 3-day, 60 mile walk, but I will absolutely, gladly do my part by baking cupcakes.
Tools to help you make these cupcakes
- Cupcake Wrappers – I really like the freestanding cupcake wrappers. You can line them on a baking sheet and bake them all at the same time.
- Cupcake Pan – If you’d rather a traditional pan, I like this one.
- Cookie Scoop – Not just for cookies, I use various size cookie scoops to easily portion out the cupcake batter.
