Can this be made as loaves instead of cupcakes? Thanks!
Hi Julie! Yes, it definitely can. The conversion times for different pans are on the bottom of this page: https://www.friendshipbreadkitchen.com/conversion-tables/
I am going to make these tomorrow, but with orange Jello. I was wondering how strong the flavor comes through with only one box of Jell-O? I have two boxes, but I’m unsure as to if I should use them both. I am really looking forward to an orange creamsicle cupcake. I hope you can help me out before tomorrow. Thank you so much!

Hi Julie! How did it turn out? I would have guessed one box would have been enough. Would love an update!
I made these with lemon jello instead of cherry because I’m not a big cherry fan. They were delicious and I plan to try other flavors as well.
OH MY GOODNESS!!! My husband and I made thee this weekend and I have to say they were a HUGE hit!!! I absolutely LOVED them! They have become my new favorites and we will definitely be making them again!
My husband and I are enjoying baking together and it has brought us closer. I can’t wait for our son to be old enough to help us too. But he sure loves it when Mommy & Daddy bake!!! 😉 Thanks agian to all who contribute these awesome recipes. I’ve never baked anything from scratch before, but have to say, I will NEVER use a boxed cake again! And, it’s so not as hard as I thought it would be!
Thanks for the great family memories we are making!!!
Have read the book months ago-wonderful read. How can the recipe call for either 1 or 2 boxes of Jell-o?

I am so enjoying the recipes you share here & will be very busy trying them out on my co-workers. I have enjoyed the novel & hope many more take the time to read it.
These are wonderful! I love them. I used my substitutes for the healthy way and it was great! Thank you!
Hi Mom! So happy you found our cherry treats! The recipe should be written to include cherry Jell-o. We don’t think there’s such a thing as “instant” jello, so please use regular Jell-o or gelatin. Hope you enjoy it!
