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!

    What an adorable idea! I don’t think I could do 12 days of cookies (I am still brain dead from NaBloPoMo!) but I look forward to getting some new recipes from your 12 days!

    Thanks everyone. I’m hoping I can actually get 12 cookies made by the end of the month. I’m going as a slow pace and got a late start so we’ll see how it goes.

    I never was a fan of peppermint flavored cookies either, but last I tried a chocolate-peppermint truffle that was wonderful. My husband is crazy for all things peppermint, so he would love these. Thanks for the festive entry, Jen! 🙂
