This is for 36 cupcakes to be filled. I only wanted to fill 7 cupcakes... so I made frosting with the rest. I used about 1/4 of the mixture to fill the cupcakes. I added approximately 1/4 cup of cocoa to the remaining filling to make an awesome frosting. I put the lot of it into my kitchen aid mixer bowl and let the wire whisk whip it for about 3 minutes.
I had a cupcake recipe that I had made and used it for these.
I seem to like taking pictures of my food almost as much as I enjoy eating it :) I shared my photo's today on: Sweet Shot Tuesday
