Cream Filled Valentine Funfetti Cupcakes

On the Menu Today~
Cream Filled Valentine Funfetti Cupcakes

Today I'm going to visit my grand-kid.
I've decided to make my Grand-kids some cupcakes..
After all, I certainly can't go for a visit empty handed......
one of the reasons why I always have a boxed cake mix,
a container of frosting and sprinkles in my house..

Boy, Do they love Cupcakes!!
When I open the door, they run and yell "It's Grandma!!"
And I say, "Hi, It's me Grandma!"
Then they yell, "What did you bring us Grandma!"
And I say, "I've got a surprise for you!"
I show them what I brought.....
Lots of Ooh's and Aah's...
"Sit down at the table and Grandma will give you a cupcake"
They run to the table...
"Ok Grandma!!"
 I pass out the goodies...
More Ooh's and Aah's....
"Yummy!!.....Thank you Grandma"
"Your Welcome"
I love being a Grandma:)

Today I'm bringing;
Cream Filled Valentine Funfetti Cupcakes
frosted and decorated with Valentine candies and sprinkles.

These delicious cupcakes start with a packaged cake mix,
are filled with a homemade cream filling.
The cream filling is fast and easy to whip up.

The cream filling tastes very close to the cream filling in Ho Ho's...
and who doesn't like Ho ho's.
Top these cream filled cupcakes with a container of frosting,
then decorate with some sprinkles and candies...
Nice and Easy Peasy~

Cream Filled Valentine Funfetti Cupcakes

  • 1 box Valentine Funfetti cake mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 24 cupcake liners
  • Cream Filling:
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 (15 oz) container funfetti vanilla frosting
  • cherry flavored ju ju hearts
  • red, white and pink m & m candies
Cooking Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350ยบ
  2. Place paper cupcake liners into 2 cupcake pans.
  3. Each pan should make 12 cupcakes.
  4. Combine cake mix, water, oil and eggs in large bowl. Mix until moistened. Beat with mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes. Pour batter into paper liners with a large spoon, fill 1/2 full.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees, for 19 to 23 minutes
  6. Remove cupcakes from pan, cool completely on wire racks
  7. Fill with cream filling when cool and frost.
  8. In a small saucepan, whisk flour into milk until there aren't any lumps
  9. Heat milk and flour on medium low heat, stirring constantly until mixture thickens to a gravy like consistency. Spoon mixture from hot pan into a small bowl. Cover with saran wrap. Allow to cool to room temperature
  10. In a mixing bowl, cream shortening and sugar about 5 minutes. Add cooled milk-flour mixture, beat until fluffy and sugar is dissolved completely, about 5 minutes (Be sure to beat until the grains of sugar are dissolved) ( If in doubt, whip some more) Add vanilla and powdered sugar. Beat well.
  11. Once cupcakes are fully cooled, place filling in a frosting bag with a star tip (#18), press the tip down into the middle of each cupcake, give a good squeeze to the bag, enough to cause the top of the cupcake to rise, but not enough to cause it to crack. (No worries if it does crack, the frosting will cover it)
  12. Frost cupcakes with funfetti frosting and top with hearts and candy
