Cream Filled Turtle Cupcakes

How to make cream filled turtle cupcakes. Delicious filled with vanilla pudding frosting inside for a really great surprise.

Cream filled turtle cupcakes that are so devine and easy to do using this trick to fill the inside with pudding filling!I usually do the typical boxed cake, frosting in a tub when it comes to cupcakes but every once and a while when the girls and I are in a baking mood we come up with some yummy creations. Combining our favorite vanilla pudding frosting inside a cupcake takes them from good to incredible cream filled turtle cupcakes. Here is the recipe.

Ok so I am guilty of using boxed chocolate cake mix (the kind that comes with pudding in it) because let’s face it, I am busy!

I don’t find that if we are making cupcakes there is THAT big of a difference for that part. I will take the time to make our own frosting and the vanilla pudding filling that is so easy to do. Seriously I could eat the whole bowl alone.

Once your pudding frosting is cool put all of it in a freezer bag and put it in the refrigerator so it gets really cold.

Then when the cupcakes are completely cooled take out the pudding frosting. Cut a small hole in the corner so you can squeeze it out easily. Snip a dime sized hole in the top of your cooled cupcake. If you want a lot inside then dig a bit of the cupcake out.

  • Squeeze the pudding frosting inside to the top and start making your top frosting that you will see when you look at it. Here is the turtle frosting recipe.

Once you put the frosting on you can add as much or as little of the outer toppings as you want. Allow your kids to decorate their own. Using a freezer bag makes it a bit easier for them to frost their own cupcakes which is fun.
