tutorial | Cupcake Coring

I gave you the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcake recipe yesterday...
Now I'd like to share with you a super easy way to add a filling to your cupcakes...

Start with cupcakes that have cooled completely.

Introducing the Cuisipro Cupcake Corer
(or some people use an apple corer)

An easy-to-use gadget that works like a charm.

Twist and push the Cupcake Corer into the middle of your cupcake

Remove the Cupcake Corer 
Your cupcake is now a "crater cake"
with an easy to dispense leftover "cupcake core"

Fill the empty cupcake with a cupcake filling of choice 
(Use a piping bag or ziploc bag with a snipped corner)

Continue coring and filling all of your cupcakes 
Don't be scared...Fill them up.
 I even tapped my filled cupcakes on the counter to help the filling settle so I could add more *wink*

I even used a plastic syringe-type piping tool I happened to have in my kitchen drawers
(it came with the Babycakes Cake Pop Maker and is actually a filling tool)
to make tiny wells into my mini cupcakes so I could fill those too. *wink*


With the cupcakes filled...
it's time for the frosting!!

Go HERE to check out a tutorial for achieving this FUN frosting finish...


I hope you found this tutorial informative, easy, and especially inspiring!!
Here's to many delicious center-filled cupcakes ahead for all of us...
Think of the possibilities...
all of the little surprises you could add to your cupcakes!!
(little candies, sprinkles, mini chocolate chips...)

Let's face it...
there are plenty of "gimmick" kitchen tools out there that we ALL buy.
You know...
the ones we realize later are completely unnecessary and a total scam.
I sort of thought this cupcake corer might end up being one of those gimmick gadgets.
I'd use it once...
realize it was a waste of my money...
and add it to my collection of unwanted kitchen gadgets for the next garage sale.
I. was. so. wrong.
And I'm SO glad.
I bought the Cuisipro Cupcake Corer months ago...
finally having the opportunity to use it made me a believer.
It really took the cupcakes to a whole new level and it was really fun to use. 
You could TOTALLY have your kids help you core the cupcakes too...

Love the gadget. I will have to add it to my wish list as something small my husband can get me:) Both posts look yummy, thanks for the frosting technique.
