Sour Peach Frosting

This frosting tastes strikingly similar to those sour peach gummy rings in the grocery store. Mmmmm....

  • 1 box (3 oz) peach flavored gelatin
  • 1/4 cup water + 2 teaspoons water
  • 4 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • red and yellow food colors
  1. In a 2-cup microwaveable bowl, stir peach gelatin into 1/4 cup water. Microwave on high 1 minute 30 seconds, stirring 2-3 times to dissolve gelatin.
  2. In a large bowl, beat gelatin mixture, powdered sugar, butter, lemon juice and additional water until frosting is thick but spreadable.
  3. Add 2 drops of red food coloring in one side of bowl and and 2 drops of yellow food coloring in other side of bowl. Swirl frosting together until barely marbled.
  4. Frost your cupcakes.
