Cupcake filling - any ideas - Page 2

One more thing about making caramel with the Sweeten Condensed Milk. DO NOT open the can until it has completely cooled. My mom had a friend who opened the can as soon as it came out of the pot of water, and it exploded in her face.

It is NOT recommended to boil the cans, although it is common practice. For other ,safer methods to make the caramel see this link...

Carmel in a cupcake is divine.. I have a picture in my photos of a chocolate cupcake filled with homemade dulche de leche.. SO good!!

I make it the old fashioned way.. milk, sugar and a little baking soda in a heavy bottomed pot for a few hours.. it's REALLY good.

Chocolate mousse is good too.. (I have that in my photos too.. icon_wink.gif )

I have used my own version of strawberry 'mousse' - whipped cream (made from heavy whipping cream) with the packaged strawberry glaze (in the produce section) - whip the cream until starting to stiffen and just add glaze and sugar until you get the texture/taste you want.

I've also used whipped chocolate ganache. That's about as adventurous as I've gotten so far...oh and filling with regular buttercream.

Thank you everyone for your great ideas! I've decided to go with strawberry mousse in white cupcakes and I found a cupcake filling recipe here in CC posted by Melivra that I'm going to try in chocolate cupcakes. If I'm successful with those, I will venture out and try the others.

The strawberry ones sound delicious, but for another time, white cupcakes filled with lime curd, then frosted with a fluffy white frosting, then sprinkled with coconut, are deeee-licious.

Another great filling for cupcakes is chocolate covered cherries!

Make your chocolate cupcake batter and pour into liners/pan and place a chocolate covered cherry on top (do not push down). While the cupcakes bake, the candy will sink into the center...what a great surprise!!! I would use a whipped cream or buttercream frosting...They are Black Forest Cupcakes!!

Hi Jenhos-
My cupcakes are baked but are in the freezer for another week. The party that I'm preparing them for is on the 25th but with a 2 year old at home and vacation coming up, I needed to get ideas flowing as soon as I could. I will post how they came out and the strawberry mousse recipe that I used in a couple of weeks.

Thanks for asking! I hope they come out as well as they look in my head!
