Rosebud made some cupcakes yesterday and after they were cooled and frosted they had to be sampled to see if they are as delicious as they look. They were.
As usual Rosebud made her cupcake last a little longer. To her there is some kind of sense of victory to still have a bite or two left when the others have finished eating theirs.
Your favorite chocolate cake recipe. A cake-mix will work just fine.
1 8oz package cream cheese
½ cup sugar
dash of salt
Mix filling ingredients together, beating until nice and fluffy. Set aside.
Mix cake batter according to directions and spoon into cupcake wrappers. Fill only a teeny bit over ½ full. Drop filling by Tablespoon full in center of cupcake. Bake at 375º for 20 minutes. Remove from cupcake tins and place on wire rack to cool.
After they are cool frost with your favorite frosting. I made a creamcheese frosting this time but any frosting will work. All depends what you are hungry for at the moment. I opened a can of cherry pie filling and placed a cherry with a wee bit of filling on top of each one for the final special optional touch.
The surprise part of these cupcakes is the filling will be totally enveloped inside the cupcake once they are finished baking so that when you bite into them you have a pleasant surprise to find a delicious filling!
