I can't believe I've made oodles of cupcakes, and I've never once filled one. Can someone give me a few tips on this. I'm making margarita cupcakes with lime curd filling. Do I wait until they're completely cooled? Do I need a special decorating tip? Any pointers will help me out. Thanks a bunch!!

I'm wondering this, too, but think the cupcake strand might be a better place for the question.
I fill all of my cupcakes. I let the cupcakes cool and then use a star tip (or any tip for that matter) to fill them. I push it into the cupcake and squeeze the decorating bag while slightly pulling up. It's easy. You can also use an apple corer or spoon to spoon out a little hole and use that to fill it.. but I prefer using a tip.
The wider the amount of filling I want the larger tip I use
You can use a bismark tip (or another tip like a 3 or 4) to insert into the top of the cupcake and squeeze some of the filling into the cupcake. You would have to wait till the Another way is to fill your tin part way then put a little filling in the middle then put more cake batter on top and bake as normal. HTH.
