Okay, so it’s not really peanut butter jelly time since I don’t eat peanut butter…but it is time for me to share my very first recipe! Because I’ve been in a cupcake baking mood over the last few weeks, I’ve been trying to be a bit more daring with the cupcake recipes I’ve been trying out.
And this means fillings!
Spoiler alert: Filling cupcakes is tougher than you think. It’s not impossible…it’s just messy! Especially if you’re a beginner like me. Read on for the rest of this debacle:
The first time I tried filling a cupcake, I elected to use a chocolate ganache. The cupcake itself was a lemon vanilla cupcake that I had made earlier in the day. Unfortunately, I don’t own any fancy cupcake coring tools and I don’t have a special tool for actually holding the filling so…I elected to use an icing bag with a large circle tip.
Don’t do that.
