Recipe by LindaqSmith
We make these cupcakes for Halloween. I recommend Betty Crocker for the cake mix. Chop the gummy worms small enough to go through your pastry bag. If you don't like a lot of sugar, use only the icing/only the filling. The prep time is for filling and icing and decorating.
- 3 ounces lime gelatin
- 1 (18 ounce) box yellow cake mix
- 3 eggs (or as called for by your cake mix)
- 1⁄3 cup oil (or as called for by your cake mix)
- 1 1⁄3 cups water (or as called for by your cake mix)
- 1 (8 ounce) can vanilla icing (it's easier to dye than home-made)
- green food coloring
- 1 cup sweetened cream cheese
- 1⁄2 cup chopped gummy worms
