I saw on a recent episode of Cupcake Wars, one contestant was cutting the center out of cupcakes with something that looked like an apple corer in order to put fillling in it. I was wondering if anyone could tell me where I might purchase one. I've been using the wilton tip that you plunge in and squirt, but I'd like to give this a try. I find the Wilton gizmo makes it really hard to judge the amount you're putting in.
Just google apple corer. They may sell them at Bed Bath & Beyond.
I don't know if you have one near you but I got one at ikea recently for $2.
Any kitchen supply store has them, I have one and it works great for filling cupcakes
Thanks. About 400 miles to the nearest IKEA but Bed And Bath down in Little Rock. I'll give them a try. thanks.
I improvised and used a big giant French Star tip I already had.
Slowly spin the "teeth" down into the center of the cuppy. Tilt a a bit to break it off and hold the little core of cake with your finger when you pull the tip out. It makes a nice little hole.
I've used bubble tea straws and hidden pillars, depending on the size of the cupcake. Push in, twist, pull out, use a thinner implement to push the cake out of the straw. Repeat.
