I was wondering if anyone has tried filling cupcakes with marshmallow fluff. The idea appeals to me but I'm not sure if it would work.
absolutely! taste wonderful too.
Thanks leily! I will give it a try. I think I'm going to make chocolate fudge cupcakes, fill them with the fluff and top them with chocolate buttercream.
Madiken, can you bring some by my house, please?
This may be common sense, but how do you get the marshmallow fluff in the cupcake - pastry bag and tip? Is fluff different than cream? I use marshmallow cream in my fudge and I have a horrible time just getting it out of the jar. Thanks.
Sure mellee! I'll be right over! (if I ever get time to make them that is!)
I was going to do it with a bag and tip because that's how I usually fill the cupcakes. I haven't done it yet though!
Is marshmallow "fluff" a different product than marshmallow "creme"? I found this online ... Marshmallow Fluff is still produced by the same batch process developed over 75 years ago - it's the only marshmallow creme made in this manner. I've never seen fluff in the stores here.
Nah, fluff and creme are the same thing. To fill cupcakes, I use an apple corer. I drive the corer right down to the bottom of the cupcake while twisting, and then I pull out the "plug." (Sometimes I have to dig a bit if it comes out in pieces). Don't worry about a hole in the bottom of the cupcake because some of the cake gets flattened down on the bottom. I do this to each cupcake and lay the plug beside it. Then I put the filling in a sealable plastic food bag. I cut a corner off the bottom of the bag and stuff the bag into each cupcake hole and squeeze in my filling. I squeeze without moving the bag until I see the filling rise up to the bag, and then I slowly bring the bag up while still squeezing until the hole is almost filled. Then I stop squeezing and take the bag out. Then I take just the tippy top of the plug and put it back on the cake unless the filling is going to be the same as the frosting, in which case I don't bother to cover the hole. It sounds like a lot of work, but it really only takes 5 or 10 minutes, and the results are GREAT! Lots of filling! Yum!
Oh I like the apple corer idea. You would definitely get more filling in that way. I'll have to get one of those!
Sorry if this is too late, but I filled some with fluff and eventually the fluff disappeared. It's too sugary and just evaporated into the cuppie.
