Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcakes!

Hi everyone! I was at the mall supposedly looking for a couple new sweaters but ended up in the
Williams-Sonoma store instead-how does that keep happening?
While there I found a cute little toy, a Cupcake Corer...
It's a little gadget that looks like this, and you screw it into the top of the cupcake to make a hole.
The little red plunger pushes the cake out of the corer.
Then you can fill it with what ever you want to, I chose raspberry jelly but strawberry is great too.
And topped them with Peanut Butter Icing!
My sons declared this idea a keeper!
Hope you love it if you try it:@)

You can use any cake recipe or box mix you like, I chose vanilla cupcakes by Joy the Baker.

Peanut Butter Icing
1/2 C butter, room temp
1 C smooth peanut butter
2 C powdered sugar
3 Tblsp milk (start with 2 Tblsp, add extra as needed to obtain a good consistency)
Cream the butter and peanut butter, add sugar and milk. Mix till combined and fluffy. 
This will not be as smooth as a butter cream frosting, but it is very tasty!

  1. Lynn, those look wonderful, and how on earth did you ice them to look like that? Is that another cupcake tool? I would love to try this. Chocolate would be another wonderful thing inside a vanilla cupcake. Oh, I'm starting to get excited just thinking about it. See what you've done??? LOL!

    XO,

  25. Those look amazing! We don't have a Williams Sonoma store :( but maybe the kitchen gadget store at the mall will have one. Now I'm wondering....donut holes took on a life of their own. Is there a market for cupcake holes?

  43. Delicious! I love cupcakes, especially those with fillings! YUM!

  44. Peanut butter and Jelly? How could I not love them? Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I think if I had a choice when I was a kid, I would have chosen to take these for a home lunch instead of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Of course, now that I'm grown, I think I'd still make the same choice! :) Thanks so much for linking this up with Sweets for a Saturday. I truly appreciate your support. I hope you'll be able to join me again next Saturday. By then, I'll have a cute button that you can grab and add to your post.
