Cupcakes That Fill Themselves

First off I love that Duncan Hines has a section specifically for "cupcakes". Leave it the goodness of Duncan Hines to do this, for cupcakes do indeed deserve a category all of their own☺ 2ndly, These "cupcakes sort of fill themselves", well, not really. You do the actually preparing and dropping of the filling, but the baking does the filling. You'll see!

  • 1 pkg. Duncan Hines Devil's Food cake mix

Moister Cake & Easy to Frost

Moister Cake & Easy to Frost

After you cool the cakes in the cake pans, loosen the cakes in the pan and turn upside down on a piece of reynolds wrap...large enough to wrap each layer like a package. Put each layer in the freezer marked with flavor and cake size. Prepare your boards, buttercream, filling etc. When you take frozen cakes from the freezer you will notice that one side is flatter and gives a crisper edge for the top layers. The cake will be easy to frost,not drag crumbs as much and is the moistest cake ever.
