Inspired by Rose's in Hampden, I decided to make my own Jell-O cupcakes for my friend's Ghetto Housewarming/Going Away Party (I won't go into the details of how one can throw a simultaneous moving in-moving out party). At any rate, the Jell-O of choice was cherry flavor -- about 1/2 the pack went into the batter. And instead of Reddi-Whip as frosting as they do at Rose's (which I didn't think would last through hours at a party), I dissolved the other 1/2 the Jell-O in hot water and mixed that into a basic buttercream (sweet butter and confectioner's sugar). Finished off with colored sprinkles of course!
