How to Make Ice Cream Filled Cupcakes


cupcakes for several years now.  They never fail to delight. 

Watch kids light up when they bite into cupcakes and find ice cream in the center.  Watch the puzzled look on their parents’ faces when they try to figure how you got the ice cream inside.

Whether it’s winter or summer, kids or adults, these cupcakes are always a hit.  They’re pretty, unique, easy to serve, and refreshing.

How to Make Ice Cream Cupcakes in Four Easy Steps

Step 1: Make the cupcakes.

Make them according to package instructions or use your recipe from scratch.

Step 2: Use an ice cream cupcake tool to cut a core from the cupcakes.

The tool will cut a plug from each cupcake with a simple twist of the wrist.  Unless you are making mini cupcakes, use the larger corer.

Step 3: Fill them with ice cream.

Use the cupcake tool to cut plugs from a block of ice cream just as you did with the cupcakes.  Place the tip of the tool in each cupcake hole and press the plunger button.  The plunger will insert the ice cream plug in the cupcakes.

Step 4: Frost them and freeze them.

Cover the holes with frosting and freeze them.  That’s all there is to it.
