Some of you may know that I am a recipe tester with the fabulous blog Leite's Culinaria. All of the recipes are tested by a variety of people - from home cooks like me to professional chefs. I love being part of this select group of testers as I have learned a lot from them and they are all so passionate about preparing great food...like me!
One of the recipes I recently tested was Hostess cupcakes- these are the cream filled cakes that were first sold in 1919! By 2011 Hostess sold over 600 milllion of these a year! (according to Wikipedia)
You can still have a homemade Hostess Cupcake. Here is the recipe. ..Homemade Hostess Cupcakes. Once you arrive on this link you can see some my comments under Testers Choice. They are actually fun to make.
Make the cupcakes then
Poke holes in them
See all the holes!
Inject the cream filling
Dip them in icing
and make the curly cues on top.
I made a bunch for a dinner at our friends Dave and Alexia. I changed the design to a spiral! A major design change! hahaha.
They said they loved them...
They were devoured!
Until we bake again...
