Here's my dessert for "Guess Who's Bringing Dessert?"! Chocolate cupcakes with raspberry filling and topped with raspberry cream cheese icing - DELICIOUS. I honestly loved them because they were super light, not too heavy/sweet. Just right enough that I could have eaten multiple (or is that a bad thing?) I love the rich, butter based icings as well - but after one bite of those my head gets swirly. Not with these super moist cupcakes and extra light (but still sturdy!) icing. I just used the Duncan Hines chocolate cake mix, and dug out a little hole in each one. I spoon-filled them with raspberry filling (ED Smith). Then, I used this recipe for the icing. I added 2 tablespoons of raspberry filling for some extra flavour (and to use up more filling - and I still have more left over! Gotta get creative...)
I don't have an official set of icing tips - but I managed to find one of my mom's old ones and I stuck it in the corner of a freezer bag - worked like a charm! I probably should have used raspberries as a garnish, but I had fresh strawberries so I couldn't resist using them. I'd love to know if you give them a try!
