15 Cupcake Genius

My sister in law's family gave me this Cupcake Genius for Christmas.  They purchased it from Avon, but you can also get it here

It is a traditional cupcake sized pan that includes a unique metal frame with silicone tips that allow the batter to bake around, forming a space for filling.

After making my Hostess Copycat Cupcakes, hollowing them out by hand and eating the insides, I was excited and ready to try this out!

It seems simple enough ~ you need to spray the tips and remembered this kitchen tip to put the frame inside the dishwasher and spray...talk about easy clean up!

Line the baking pan with cupcake liners, fill 2/3 full and snap on the metal frame.

Bake as directed, take out of the oven, and wait 5 minutes.

The frame came off easily and didn't destroy any cupcakes in the process...

Filled it with creme (included in the Hostess Cupcake recipe) ... and yes, that is a Ziploc baggie with the tip cut off.  Worked perfectly!  Your choice of fillings are endless: whipped cream, caramel, nuts, fruits, pudding, jelly or candy.

Covered it with chocolate ganache and swirled some more creme on top ... ta da!

Let's take a peek and see how much filling is inside ...

 What a fun surprise!  What would YOU want to find inside your cupcake?


  1. What a need kitchen widget. I use my apple corer to remove the extra dough for the filling.

  2. Amazing that necessity will always be the mother of invention...fanastic and much better than a grafefruit spoon...hugs from the WEST PORTICO, P

  3. Hi Frieda, That looks fabulous! I've never seen anything like it. Thanks for the tip.
