Winter Shock Cupcakes

Angy Cooper


Makes 20 cupcakes which is one a piece for 20 people or 2 a piece for 10 people. You can try this recipe with various cake mixes, and/or gelatins. I did not use sugar free for the Cranberry gelatin as I could not find it in the sugar free. Also the oil does not have to be canola that is a personal choice. the whipping cream can be replaced with plain milk or butter milk. The Coconut I used was Birdseye from the frozen section, but the packaged sweetened coconut flakes will also work. Finally if you prefer cake to cupcakes, this is fine just follow the cooking temp and time instructions on your cake box.
