Jello Cakes are a favorite with my family. I always use strawberry jelly crystals but you can use any flavor you like.
When made a day ahead the cream seems to moisten the cake mixture and they really melt in your mouth! I am sure that once you make these jelly cakes, you will be asked to make them again and again ... and again.
These cupcakes were always a favorite for birthday parties when I was growing up and then over the years I have made them for my children. My mom used to make them in gem irons but I make them in cupcake trays.
An elderly friend of mine makes her jello cakes with orange jello and I have also seen them made with green jello for St Patrick's Day. Regardless of which flavor jello you use, they will be a huge hit.
