Is it possible to fill cupcakes, and if so, how do you do it?

Thanks,

I do it all the time. I have a set of round stainless cutters and use one of the smaller ones. I just press it into the middle of the cupcake pull out the plug and fill the hole, then ice as usual.

If your filling does not have any seeds or lumps you can take an ordinary round tip (like #3-icon_cool.gif; fill decorating bag w/filling; insert tip into cupcake and squeeze until you see the cc start to expand. Don't overdo the filling as it will just ooze out icon_sad.gif

kakeladi - any suggestions for a good filling? Also - about how much filling do you use for a standard cupcake? Tried this once and had some oozing...prob overfilled???

How about using a melon baller to scoop out a cavity?? would that work?

I have one, but I dont think I have ever used it for melons...more for things like butter spheres (for a dinner table with guests), mini ganache balls (YUMM!!) for truffles, avacado for salads
