With homemade Nutella buttercream frosting! 

This year for Victor‘s birthday I wanted to make something extra special. I have made Jello Poke Cake in the past but wanted to trying something that would be easier to serve to a dozen friends out for a birthday brunch in the neighborhood. These vanilla cupcakes are special because they have stripes of strawberry rum jello inside. They are topped with an icing made with a blend of butter, sugar, and everyone’s favorite Nutella (an entire jar!). These were a sell-out hit at Victor’s brunch, everyone had two. Happy Birthday Victor!

Anise Jello

Recently Art and Marty took a vacation to Mexico and brought back an assortment of Mexican jello for me. Included among usual tropical fruit flavors was the more unusual anise flavored gelatin. Anise is a seed that tastes similar to sweet liquorish. I topped off the gelatin with wafers sandwiched with Nutella hazelnut cocoa spread.  The result was delicious.  I brought the jello to work and served it to my co-workers for Laura‘s birthday.
