  • 1 ounce orange-flavor gelatin
  • 1 white cake mix
  • 1 cheesecake instant pudding and pie filling mix
  • 1 1/4 orange juice
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 recipe Cream Pop Frostings
  • Wooden craft sticks (optional)
  • Reynolds® StayBrite® Baking Cups


Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line twenty-seven 2-1/2-inch muffin cups with Reynolds® StayBrite® Baking Cups. Set aside 2 teaspoons of the gelatin for the Cream Pop Frostings. In a mixing bowl beat the remaining gelatin, the cake mix, pudding mix, orange juice, eggs, oil, and vanilla.

Step 2

Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling each about two-thirds full. Use the back of a spoon to smooth out batter in cups.

Step 3

Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool cupcakes in muffin cups on wire racks for 5 minutes. Remove cupcakes from muffin cups. Cool completely on wire racks.

Step 4

Spoon orange-flavor Cream Pop Frosting into a pastry bag fitted with a large round tip. Spoon the vanilla-flavor Cream Pop Frosting into another pastry bag fitted with a small star tip. Pipe orange frosting onto each cupcake to cover the top. Pipe a medium-size star of white frosting onto each cupcake. If desired, insert a crafts stick into top of each cupcake. Makes 27 (2-1/2-inch) cupcakes.

Step 5

Cream Pop Frosting: Mix together 1 recipe Cream Cheese Frosting, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla, 1 teaspoon finely shredded orange peel and a few drops of orange food coloring (optional).

Step 6

Cream Cheese Frosting: Mix together 1 8-ounce softened package cream cheese, 1/2 cup softened butter, 2 teaspoons vanilla, and 5 1/2-6 cups powdered sugar.
