    I love the idea for these cakes, and the taste of them- I just much prefer the layer cake version!! The cupcake one took a lot more work & time. Also, I'm glad that I bought 2 boxes of Jell-O (one red, one green) because I ran out of Jell-O before I coated all the cupcakes. These are delicious, just go with the cake version if you can.

    Absolutely amazing!!! I was worried that I poked to many holes and had soaked the cake, but it came out perfect. I used red food coloring on the cool whip and red sugar sprinkles. One of the easiest desserts you could ever make!
