Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Prepare cake mix according to package directions for cupcakes in dark-colored paper liners. Cool completely.

  • In a medium bowl prepare instant pudding mix according to package directions. Tint with enough green food coloring to reach desired color. In another medium bowl, combine frosting and enough pink food coloring to reach desired color.

  • Using a large piping tip or apple corer, remove the core of the cupcake by inserting the large open end and twisting until the cake is loose. Fill with the green pudding mixture. Trim cake tops off of the reserved cake piece and place top on top of pudding. Repeat with remaining cupcakes and pudding (reserve any remaining pudding for another use or serve with cupcakes). Frost a thin layer of pink frosting over the cupcakes. Transfer remaining frosting into a resealable plastic bag or a piping bag fitted with a medium open tip. Pipe a line down the middle of the cupcake top and loop back up making a squiggle and back with the same motion. Repeat on other half of the cake top and with the remaining cupcakes and frosting. Drizzle with jam.
