Ahhh.... now that I look closer at the picture it looks as though the center of the cupcake is cored out and apple filling in the middle right under the icing.... am I right? Please help! :-)

Yes, you are right. Or if you want to cut time you can just pile the filling on top of cupcakes and pip frosting on top and drizzle caramel sauce. I use store bought caramel sauce and use my home made cream cheese frosting.

hi. should make a hole in the cupcake for the filling?

07/15/2014 Flag

Hi Princesas, I did not make a hole in the cupcakes, I just pile a spoonful of apple filling on top of the cupcake and pip frosting on top of it. Since the cupcakes will come out flat top, it works fine to hold the filling on top (and save time too). Also these are super delicious cupcakes...I don't want to waste any of it!! But if you would like to have more apple filling inside the cupcake, please feel free to make hole for it!!
