Special Equipment Needed

How to Pipe COOL WHIP Mixture onto Cupcakes

Insert desired decorating tip in pastry bag. Fold down top of pastry bag about halfway to form cuff. Spoon enough COOL WHIP mixture into bag to fill halfway. Unfold cuffed top and twist bag until it meets level of frosting in bag. To pipe, hold bag firmly and squeeze from top of bag, keeping bag twisted to prevent COOL WHIP mixture from leaking out from top of bag. If you don't have a pastry bag, you can use a resealable plastic bag instead. Spoon COOL WHIP mixture into bag, then cut piece off one bottom corner of bag. Twist top of bag as directed, then use to pipe COOL WHIP mixture onto cupcakes.

How to Use the Remaining Dry Gelatin Mixes

Combine leftover dry gelatin mixes in medium bowl. Add 3/4 cup boiling water; stir 2 min. until mixes are completely dissolved. Stir in 3/4 cup cold water. Refrigerate several hours or until firm.


Spread COOL WHIP mixture onto cupcakes instead of piping it onto the cupcakes.
