Cupcake filling - any ideas

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I would like to make some cupcakes for an upcoming family event and I would like to get "fancy" with them and fill them with... something. I have no idea. Pudding? Mousse? I did try filling cupcakes once using chocolate pudding but that was a disaster. Did not work for beans. So I'm looking for another option. I do have the bismark tip to help fill the cupcakes.

Any ideas or suggestions??
Thanks!!

Thank you both for the suggestions! Hope would I do the caramel filling? Just melt some caramels and fill or is there more to that?

Naw, why make it hard on yourself, just go to the store and pick up some ice cream topping until you find a recipe you like. It's family right?icon_wink.gif

I didn't even think of that! Another great tip! Thanks!! And yes, they are for family. They won't know the difference. They'll just think I'm very crafty!

My fav thing to fill cupcakes with is homemade dulce le leche caramel. You can buy it in a can premade, or make your own by boiling an unopened can of condensed milk for about 3-4 hours making sure to keep the water at a simmer and keep the can covered so it doesn't explode.

that sounds good jen1977, I have heard of people doing that but do you puncture the top of the can at all or just put it in there unopened?

Another good filling for a white cake IMO is strawberry mousse and chocolate ganache...but you know what....the hot fudge in a jar would be delish also!

Re: making your own caramel with Sweeten Condensed Milk, you need to keep the can COVERED with water at least a couple of inches through out the whole four hours......or it will explode.

Do not open or puncture it.

I usually make five or six cans a time since it is a four hour process. When I get down to two cans, I start the process again.

Hello,

Wilton has a lovely website: www.cupcakefun.com

They have a bunch of filling recipes (I think the cinnamon cream cheese sounds awesome) and some great icing recipes too! Also, tons of cute cupcake decorating ideas. Maybe this website will help?
