Filling a Cupcake

Fillings are thrilling (and easy) additions to baked cupcakes! Just use a Wilton tip, such as the Bismarck tip 230, to pipe in whipped topping, pie filling, peanut butter and jelly, or flavored mousse.


Difficulty: Easy


Step 1

Prepare a decorating bag with your icing filling and Round Decorating Tip 230. Insert tip in top center of an uniced cupcake and squeeze out a small amount of filling. Or, use the Wilton Dessert Decorator, which includes a filling tip and an easy-to-control cylinder for adding just the right amount.

Step 2

Cut open your cupcake or take a bite and find a yummy surprise!

Step 3

For Lemon Meringue Filling

We’ve made this favorite pie portable! Use your favorite lemon pie filling in a disposable decorating bag fitted with tip 230. Insert the tip in the top of cupcake (we tinted the batter rose) and squeeze. For the top, prepare our Meringue Recipe and pipe a tip 1M swirl. Place cupcake in 375°F oven until top is light brown.

Step 4

For Raspberry Mousse Cupcake Filling

A great flavor match with chocolate cupcakes! Use your favorite raspberry mousse recipe in a disposable decorating bag fitted with tip 230. Insert the tip in top of cupcake and squeeze. Cover top with tip 1M swirl in raspberry mousse.

Step 5

For Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcake Filling

A flavor combination filled with memories. Attach tip 2A to two disposable decorating bags. Fill one bag with creamy peanut butter and one with your favorite jelly. Insert tip in top of cupcake, filling first with peanut butter, then with jelly. Cover top with tip 1A swirl in buttercream.
