A twist of citrus and a surprise creamy inside make this starry cupcake heavenly.
box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ yellow or lemon cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
cup Betty Crocker™ Whipped vanilla frosting
cup marshmallow creme
container Betty Crocker™ Whipped butter cream frosting
teaspoons grated lemon peel
teaspoons fresh lemon juice
cup Betty Crocker™ star decors
Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Place paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffins cups. Make and bake cake mix as directed on box for 24 cupcakes. Cool in pans 10 minutes; remove from pans to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
By slowly spinning end of round handle of wooden spoon back and forth, make deep, 3/4-inch-wide indentation in center of top of each cupcake, not quite to bottom (wiggle end of spoon in cupcake to make opening large enough).
In small bowl, mix filling ingredients. Spoon into small resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag. Cut 3/8-inch tip off 1 corner of bag. Insert tip of bag into opening in each cupcake; squeeze bag to fill opening.
In medium bowl, stir together 1 container butter cream frosting, the lemon peel and lemon juice. Frost cupcakes. Sprinkle with stars. Store loosely covered.
Use sugared edible flowers to garnish these cupcakes.
You'll get more lemon juice from a room-temperature lemon than from a cold one.
If you have only one pan and a recipe calls for more cupcakes than your pan will make, cover and refrigerate the rest of the batter while baking the first batch. Cool the pan about 15 minutes, then bake the rest of the batter, adding 1 to 2 minutes to the bake time.
