    Cute Halloween design. Turned out great! This was the first "cake" I made. My two boys (age 6 and 7) helped decorate it. They are taking it to school tomorrow for a Halloween treat!

    Easy to make, and absolutely delicous. I will add the jello mix to all cupcakes I make from now on. It really made them moist.
