Ingredients
  • 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 Valentine m & m candies
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350° Place paper cupcake liners into 2 cupcake pans. Each pan should make 12 cupcakes.

  2. 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. Bake at 350° degrees, for 19 to 23 minutes.

  3. Remove cupcakes from pan, cool completely on wire racks.
  4. In a small saucepan, whisk flour into milk until there aren't any lumps. 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. 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.
  5. Once cupcakes are fully cooled, place filling into 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)
  6. Frost cupcakes with funfetti frosting and top with hearts and candy
