Just last week, I found the perfect cupcake pan online, then forgot where I found it. It had either 12 or 24 cavities. Then the part I loved was that it had this contraption that you placed over the pan that had this cork shaped plug that was suspended from a wire frame over each cupcake.

The result was that when you baked the cupcakes, each cupcake ended up with a hole in the center that once you removed the "cork wire frame thing-a-majig". You could then just fill each cupcake with your favorite filling. No boring holes or wasted batter. I hope my description makes sense. If you've seen it, you know what I'm talking about.

We'll bottom line is I lost it, can anyone help me find it?

Yes Toni Ann, this is it!! I was so feeling at a loss, because I had big plans for this cupcake contraption and was feeling depressed at the thought of having to bore holes in 300 cupcakes.

Thank you so much!!

Mmmmm, interesting... My DD sells Avon, and they have these in their current catalogue. Mind you, I am in Canada, and they may not be available in the US. They sell for $20. cdn. Might be worth asking your local Avon rep...

THAT'S where I saw it, in an Avon brochure, not on TV. Here it is, thought it is not yet available on the website:

This contraption was discussed about 6 weeks ago.

The concensus seemed to be that it would be more trouble than it's worth, having to clean and assemble over and over again.

All right already, after reviewing this link I've decided that the cupcake genius may NOT be the genius way to go. Apparently, I'm about to save myself $15.00+ by getting the Bismark tube instead. Thanks for the feedback.

My only suggestion when using the bismark tip, if you're doing a red filling, do more than two punctures, or just one. I tried two once and it looked like I was trying for a vampire theme before the icing was added. icon_wink.gif

I'm always surprised when people go to all the trouble to core out cupcakes, etc. I just use a #10 or #12 for gel fillings and make one single hole. If I'm using like the 1M tip to do a swirl on top, and am filling with the same I'm icing with (Bettercreme) I just use the same tip, poke it down into the cupcakes and fill, continuing as I pull it out and swirl the top. I get tons of filling in them, have never had trouble with it. I mean, it's like a 1:1 cake to filling ratio! I have pix if anyone wants to see. And I never have wasted cake or anything like that.

Absolutely hon!! Now this cupcake was baked in one of those nut cups which I don't generally use unless requested. I just filled and iced with the same tip. I believe it was a 20? Largish star tip. Most of the time though I just use 1M, the one that makes the cupcakes look kind of like a rose. Just fill and ice with the same tip. Never a problem. And only ONE hole down the middle... I don't make multiple holes. If you need more filling that this, you just need a bowl and a spoon, cuz you can't get more IN the cupcake. Hahaha.

I just filled 125 cupcakes with a smallish round tip....I of course had to check a few to make sure they had enough filling, and YEP they had quite a bit in there! Chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter mousse. Mmm.

No holes poked in advance, just shoved the tip down in there and squeezed.
