I was wondering if any has tried using the "Debbie Meyer Cupcake Genius" for filling cupcakes? I just saw an ad in a magazine for it and I was wondering how it works. What it looks like it is, is a wire "rack" that fits over a cupcake pan with red silicon mold that creates holes in the middle of your cupcake while baking them, then evidently you pull it off while they are cooling. I am a little concerned out them. I would think that the cake (after it was baked) would stick to the silicon hole mold, and rip the cupcake apart. Anyone experience with this. I have a 400 cupcake order coming up in Sept and thought it might save time if they worked.

I haven't seen or heard of this item but I don't really see the need for it. I fill my cupcakes all the time. I just use a big piping tip (like 1M or 2D) for filling.

I have one and I love it. It does not stick to the tip. I spray mine w/ a little non stick spray before I bake and they just pop right off.

I use tip 230. It's not a wilton tip but I got it at my cake decorating store - just a couple bucks. It doesn't need a coupler. It takes just seconds to fill a cup cake. Fill piping bag with what you want to fill the cup cake with, squeeze for a second or two and you're done. Very simple.

I don't buy into all of the new gadgets out there... I use an apple corer and take the centers out with that. I already had that so why buy a new tool. I guess it depends if you have money to spend on all ogf the tools out there.

I love mine but I always get a little sticking on the tips even when I spray with non-stick. It may be that I don't let them cool enough first. But I love the fact that the hole is there and I can use all sorts of fillings I can't get through a bismark tipicon_smile.gif

Just a follow up remark... when filling the cupcakes for instance lemon or margarita cupcakes I fill with Lemon curd. I use those plastic bottles that the craft store sell or Michaels & just cut the tip a little they work perfectly for that! And no mess!
