How to Fill Cupcakes

I’ve always wanted to learn how to fill cupcakes, so I did and now I want to share my techniques with you.

You Will Need:

  • Cupcakes of any sort
  • Filling (can be the same as the icing you’re using, or something different like jam or mousse)
  • Icing
  • Piping bag and tip
How to Fill Cupcakes
I used a devil’s food cake box mix, raspberry jam filling, and a raspberry buttercream to make the cupcakes pictured here. Chocolate and raspberries are my OTP.

Step 1:

Insert the tip into the top middle of the cupcake as far as it will go. Gently squeeze the bag and slowly pull it up, making sure to fill the hole all the way.
Hold the tip end of the bag with one hand and use the other to hold down the bag’s opening so that nothing spills out. Insert the tip into the top middle of the cupcake as far as it will go. Gently squeeze the bag and slowly pull it up, making sure to fill the hole all the way.
It's okay if there is a little filling overflowing onto the top. This will be covered up with icing in the next step.

Step 2:

Using a piping bag (you may want to rinse it out first), pipe the icing onto the cupcakes. First, start by going around the outer circumference, and slowly swirl your way into the middle where you'll gently lift off the icing, giving it a small peak. Make sure you have covered the entire top surface of the cupcake.

Yup, it’s that simple. It’s a really easy way to take your cupcakes to the next level and wow your friends and family. The icing recipe I used needs a little tweaking, so I’ll include the recipe for that in a future post once it’s been finalized.
