Orange Dream Cupcake Recipe


I am loving these Orange Dream cupcakes!! Not only do they remind me of my favorite childhood popsicle, the Dreamscicle – but they are so perfect for summer and EASY to make! All you need is a box of white cake mix, a pack of orange jello, and some whipped cream!

To make these dreamy cupcakes, simply take your white cake mix and prepare according to the box instructions in cupcake liners/pans. After they have cooled, poke some holes all the way through from the top of the cake to the bottom. They are ready to be “filled”. Take your orange Jello and instead of adding 2 cups of water (for the small size box) add 1 1/4 cups of boiling water. Mix it up until it is dissolved. It’s easiest if you do this right in the measuring cup. Then, slowly pour the Jello mixture over the top of the cupcakes! The Orange liquid will soak in through the holes. Place the cupcakes in the fridge for a couple of hours until the Jello has set. Then, you can top them with whipped cream and enjoy!!

These are seriously SO easy to make. I love that they don’t involve a lot of effort but they turn out amazing. You can experiment with the different flavors of Jello too – depending on what you like. This is such an inexpensive dessert!
