How to Fill Cupcakes

Arlene Mobley - Flour On My Face
The filling I am using for these cupcakes is a very easy to make strawberry sauce that I have made and used for many things. This method works for any type of filling.

  • Slice the center out of your cupcake (like hulling a strawberry) with a steak knife. Shave some off to make it flat.
  • Hollow out more from the cupcake if needed.
  • Add 1 teaspoon jam to the cupcake, making sure to leave enough room to place the top back on and be level.
  • Replace tops and press down gently.
  • Frost as normal.
