If you are known in your circle of friends for creating amazing sweet treats you probably want to uphold your reputation as pastry master. In order to do so you have to constantly be refining your technique, discovering new recipes and acquiring innovative tricks of the trade. One fun little tool that can help to keep you on top is the Cupcake Corer and Decorating Kit by Cuisipro.
Corers are better known for their work with fruit, but have an even more exciting job in this case. The cupcake corer makes a perfect hole in the center of your cupcake for filling with all kinds of amazing fillings. It sounds easy to use as it comes with a guard to indicate how deep you are cutting into the cake and after the ‘core’ has been removed it can just be plunged out of the device.
Once you have the cupcakes cored they are ready to fill with cream, jam, mousse, frosting, custard or any other tasty filling you can dream up. The accompanying squeeze bottles are said to be great for filling the cupcakes.
Imagine your friends’ faces when they bite into what looks like an ordinary cupcake, but is actually filled with an unexpected treat. You could even use this on a regular cake to cut out random holes and fill before frosting or cut holes in muffins to fill with a bit of cream cheese or preserves before reattaching a small bit of the core. I don’t know if it would work for these purposes, but I think it would be fun to try! (See Cusipro)
