Here is a quick cupcake post that was fun to make and fun to eat. Your kids, big and small (and the adult ones too) will have a hard time resisting these cream-filled cupcakes. Actually, my husband couldn't keep his hands off them. I found out (by the open container) that he had one at 9:00am this morning. He tried to blame it on one of my daughters but he was caught and he had to confess.
These treats were made from a boxed mix of devil's food cake and containers of whipped fluffy white frosting. Even though I do like to bake from scratch, I have no problem using boxed mixes from time to time. And as much as my family loved these cupcakes, they don't mind either.
I found this recipe on the recipe site, Tablespoon.com.
I filled the cupcake centers with frosting by using the round end of a wooden spoon and inserting halfway into the cupcakes to make a hole. My daughter, Marissa, poked the holes for me. I then put the frosting in a storage bag, clipped the corner and while holding the bag, I put the corner into the holes and squeezed the frosting into the cupcakes until the frosting came out of the hole. You'll be frosting over this part so don't worry how it looks at this point. Frost the tops and sprinkle with mini-chocolate chips.
The taste reminds me of Ho Ho's and Swiss Rolls. They would be perfect for a birthday party or bake sale. Or a perfect way to end your day or in my husband's case, start your day!
Mom's Cooking Club Lesson: I did use cupcake liners when making the cupcakes. There's no worry about sticking and who doesn't like peeling off the cupcake liner before taking a big bite.
