We all know how cupcakes can place a smile on just about anyone's face, but imagine how much bigger that smile could be if they were to bite into a cupcake and find a surprise in the center! Some of us may wonder how the baker did it, and others would figure the surprise was just pushed in the middle of the batter before baking. Yeah, that could work, but then again, there are no guarantees the surprise won't move once you fill the mold with batter. So here's the answer, a cupcake pan with a pin in the centre of each cupcake mold.
To start, all you need to do is line each mold with a cupcake liner. Once you push down on the liner, the pin with automatically pierce the liner, making for a perfect fit. Fill half of the mold with batter using a spoon, a piping bag or an ice cream scoop.
Then comes the best part, placing the surpise on the pin. The possibilities are endless. I'm thinking marshmallows, Oreo cookies, peanut butter, or maybe some cookie dough? You really can't go wrong. Once your ready, top off each mold with more batter until the surprise is covered. After that, you are ready for the oven.
Okay, okay, let's face it, some of us just are down right lazy. So, if you want to cut some corners, just spray down your mold with non-stick spray, place the surprise on the pin and fill the mold. Wolla! You are ready for the oven.
Saweet! If you want to try this out, you can pick one up from The Lighter Side Co. it'll cost you about $23(US).
