I borrowed this pic from a fellow blogger...check her out here: http://dishingwithdish.blogspot.com/2009/02/homemade-hostess-cupcakes.html

Well DS wakes up at  8:30 am and begins about cupcakes...bout drove me nuts. So I will be going to commissary to get the supplies and a new frosting tip to suff these bad boys. Now the recipe comes from the site above mentioned...she got it from all recipes.com.

Cream-Filled Cupcakes from Allrecipes.com
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1/3 cup baking cocoa
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup butter, softened
2 cups confectioners' sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch salt

1. In a mixing bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Add eggs, milk, oil, water and vanilla. Beat until smooth, about 2 minutes. Fill paper-lined muffin cups half full. Bake at 375 degrees F for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.

2. In a mixing bowl, combine butter, confectioners' sugar, milk, vanilla and salt; beat until fluffy, about 5 minutes. Insert a decorating tip into a pastry or plastic bag; fill with cream filling. Push the tip through the top of each cupcake to fill.

3. Frost tops with chocolate frosting or glaze, and pipe a white squiggly line on top.

I will add pictures of this adventure with a 3 year old.

*This is how they went at my house once cooled and frosted: I didn't eat any...too much chocolate for me, but hubby ate 3 and the rest went like this: DS had 1 along with a little friend, and my neighbors got 4 of them and her hubby dove right in...hahha they really liked them alot.*

Ok here's my picture of the 18 that me Buddybooboo made:
Enjoy drooling cos there ain't none left!
