Each year at school, the 3, 4, and 5 year olds host a Spring Luncheon for their families. This past spring my class re-enacted a song from Peanut Butter Jam about cupcakes being stolen from them by various animals (a monster, dinosaur, bullfrog, etc). They were cupcakes filled with jelly! So naturally I decided it was only fitting to bake jelly filled cupcakes to serve for dessert at the luncheon.
Jelly Filled Cupcakes
It’s actually pretty simple to make jelly filled cupcakes, or any type of filled cupcakes for that matter. Bake the cupcakes according to your recipe/box mix. Let the cupcakes cool. You don’t need to buy one of those new cupcake plunger/filler devices, it can be cheaper and easier than that. All you need is a vegetable corer. Simply insert corer and with a slight up-down motion move around in a circle until the circle is complete. As you take the corer out, the cut-out portion should come out with it. If you’re like me, you won’t want to waste any of the cupcake and will eat all of the cut-out pieces For the next step, either spoon the desired filling into the middle, or use a frosting bag to pipe the desired filling into the cupcake’s middle. Enjoy!
