Hostess Cupcakes!

Recommended Posts

Guest AutumnE

I cannot believe how good they were, I ate way too many!

I took pamelas chocolate cake mix and made cupcakes. I mixed up powdered sugar, shortening, and a lot of vanillla (3 to 4 tsp) and blended it with just a touch of rice milk. I used a cake decorating tip with a bag after the cupcakes were cool and squeezed it in through the top of the cupcake till the filling came slightly out the top. When I finished it I melted chocolate and shortening and let it cool till it was thick and poured some over the top. For the finishing touch you could pipe white frosting on top to match the hostess cupcakes. It was very similar to hostess!

This would be good even without the chocolate on top.

That is fantastic! You just made a house full of celiacs very happy! I will have to go get the ingredients before I announce this new find. Otherwise I might get my arm chewed off or something.

Your welcome. I was able to get some filling in there but I really had to work it and poke a few holes to get a decent amount. A good option also might be to gouge out a little of the top then fill it then put the top on and then pour the chocolate on top.

This pan might work well too-http://www.wilton.com/store/site/product.cfm?sku=2105-155&CMP=AFC-CCF

I usually make ice cream cakes with the ice cream in the middle but they would work great this way too. You can buy large pans like this with the center cut out if you want to make it a full sized cake. You would get in more cream filling this way.

I have made something very similar before. I saw them being made on Everyday Baking. And did that recipe with my own flour substituion. I made up 2 or 3 cups of this ratio 1/2 C rice flour, 1/4 C tapioca flour 1/4 potato starch. They were very good. I didn't like the filling so much, they used marshnellow cream and butter. I will add some sugar next time. It tasted too much like marshmellow.

I did two different batches, one when I took the time to cut a ltille plug out and fill and then re plug it. And one where I just stuck in tip in. It was worth the time to remove a plug, much more control of the filling.

And after all that, my daughter never tried one. Her brothers ate them all. She said she didn't feel like one.

When the temp drops below 70 I will have to try these, right the oven does not get turned on in my house. I have MS and the heat just makes me melt and saps my engry so any extra added heat makes me worse so all the cooking is done in the crockpot or on the grill in the summer time so the gives me something to look forward to in the fall. I will copy and paste and save to file. Thanks for posting. I have gotten so many great recipes from here.
