big fail.....the cupcakes were fool proof. but the frosting was a disaster. Be really careful to not put in the jello for too long in the fridge once it gets too "solid" it clumps with the coolwhip creating this weird pink batter. I had to run to the store to buy a can of frosting. Maybe a electronic hand mixer would help.

I had no problem with the jello. The cupcake are rave worthy. I did use a red velvet cake mix and rolled the cherries in sugar. Oh yummy!
