How To Fill Cupcakes

June 29th, 2012 by Susan

I never realized how easy it is to fill cupcakes.  It definitely takes some extra time, but the results are well worth the extra effort.

To fill my cupcakes, I used a corer that I picked up when I purchased my mini cupcake pan.  I have a feeling I’ll be using this corer a lot more in the future.

I inserted the corer into the cupcakes once they were fully cooled.  I twisted the corer slowly in a circle and slowly removed the corer.  I gently removed the circle of cake to place over the filling later.


Fill a pastry bag with the cupcake filling.  To steady the pastry bag, I folded the edge of a bag over a tall cup and then filled the pastry bag.  Pipe the filling into the hole left from the corer.

Once the cupcake is filled, replace the round piece of cake from the corer.  Then, frost the cupcakes!

There are several other techniques to fill cupcakes.  Some articles I read on the subject mentioned corers, others mentioned small biscuit cutters, and still others mentioned using injection tips to fill cupcakes with completely smooth fillings.  Now that I have a corer, I think I’m going to stick with this method.
