How do you fill the centre of cupcakes?

I often get asked how you get the filling in to the centre of a cupcake. It couldn't be easier. Using a decorating bag with your icing filling and round decorating Tip 230; insert tip in top center of an uniced cupcake and squeeze out a small amount of filling. Or, use the Wilton Dessert Decorator, which includes a filling tip and an easy-to-control cylinder for adding just the right amount. You can't really overfill these - give it a go and you'll see what I mean.
Cut open your cupcake or take a bite and find a yummy surprise! (source photograph copyright 2004 Wilton Industries inc).
The options are endless with this technique, fill with lemon curd or other preserve. Cream cheese in carrot cake - so many ideas, so little time!


  1. Do you make a hole in the cupcake first, removing a piece of the cake to make room for the filling?

  2. you don't need to remove anything, you just push the nozzle in, the force from squeezing the icing does the work for you
