can anyone explain to me how to fill a cup cake please.
I have done many cakes, but never cup cakes.
I made some chocolate cupcakes last night for my kids, but i heard on here that you can fill them as well.
How do i do that? do I tort them like a little cake? Or make a hole in the center and fill with a tip.
please share the secret.

You can used a piping bag with almost any tip. Although, Wilton makes a cupcake filling tip. It is just a little longer than most tips to get deep down, but basically, just stick the tip really far down in the cupcake and squeeze really hard as you pull up. You could always try torting it though. That might kinda cute! I hope this helps!

Pipe gently b/c you don't want your cupcake to blow up. icon_lol.gif Hold the cupcake in your hand while filling and you will get the feel of when it's full.

Also, you might want to check out the new cupcake forum. thumbs_up.gif
