Cream-Filled Cupcakes with Ganache Frosting

These cupcakes are always a hit, and I LOVE them. If you like super-stuffed cupcakes, make a double batch of the marshmallow cream filling.

Cream-Filled Cupcakes with Ganache Frosting


  • 1 Package (18-1/4 ounces) devils food cake mix
  • 2 teaspoons hot water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow creme
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/3 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Ganache Frosting:
  • 1 Cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream


  1. Prepare and bake cupcakes according to package directions using paper-lined muffin cups. Cool for 5 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
  2. For filling, in a small bowl, combine water and salt until salt is dissolved. Allow to cool. In a small mixing bowl beat the marshmallow creme, shortening, confectioners’ sugar, and vanilla on high until light and fluffy; add salt mixture.
  3. Insert a small round pastry tip into a pastry or plastic bag; fill with cream filling. Insert the tip halfway into the center of each cupcake and fill with a small amount.
  4. In a heavy saucepan, melt the chocolate chips with heavy whipping cream. Cool. Dip cupcake tops into frosting, then chill for 20 minutes or until set. Store in refrigerator.
