You can FILL cupcakes with puddings, caramel, frostings, ganache and even jams and preserves.

I have two pieces of ADVICE though…

– If you are planning on using “runny” fillings like jams, puddings and caramel, be sure to fill your cupcakes less than an hour before serving or else they would become a soggy mess.

– Also, it’s best to avoid runny fillings if your cupcakes will be exposed to heat at outdoor parties or weddings.

  1. There’s an easier way to fill a cupcake without having to cut out the middle. Just fill a piping bag with the desired filling and using a #12 tip, poke the tip into the cupcake and squeeze. That’s it.
