Cone Method

I learned about the cone method from the truely inspirational blog Cupcake Bakeshop. It’s a great way to put any filling into your cupcake.

If you’ve got someone willing to help, I’ve found that the process goes much faster with a partner. I’ve convinced hubby to help out a couple times. I cut and he fills.

Step 1: After cupcakes have completely cooled, use a sharp knife to cut out a cone.

Step 2: Scoop small amount of filling into cupcake.

Step 3: Replace top onto cupcake. I usually break off the cone part of the top so that it lies flat on the cupcake.

Step 4: Frost cupcake as usual and enjoy the look on everyone’s face when they get a surprise when they bite into your cupcakes!

      Thanks. I have a rotating cake thingy for decorating cakes. They’re like $10 from Michaels. SO worth it for frosting layer cakes. Anyways, I spread the mousse on, then I just hold the knife and rotate the plate so it spins. Slowly pull the knife in towards the middle while it’s spinning and voila – a nice swirl! And it’s fun to do 🙂
