I watched Cooking Channel’s Unique Eats: Cupcakes and got totally enamored with the delight of baking, stuffing, and devouring everything cupcake.
My first attempt was the “twinkie cupcake”. I made a homemade yellow cake batter (box would also work – just add some vanilla and sour cream to the batter to make it special), baked up the cupcakes as normal and then piped in a mixture of marshmallow cream and cream cheese into the center before topping with vanilla buttercream frosting and caramel drizzle.
Next on my list - Butternut Squash Cupcake Stuffed with Maple Cream Cheese
I’m also considering making some for Christmas and I’m toying with ideas of red velvet w/ chocolate gauche filling and vanilla frosting topped with coconut. Too much? Or just enough…?!?!
