But first, let’s chat about the cupcakes. You can, of course, use any flavor you like, the cupcakes I baked are from a box mix, and are actually gluten-free. I have found over the last 5 months or so, that I feel much better if I don’t eat gluten. So I am beginning to experiment a bit with gluten-free baking. I decided on chocolate to go with the chocolate mousse, but yellow or white cupcakes would be just as delicious too.

To make the Chocolate Mousse, you will need a small box of instant pudding (you can use cooked if you prefer), milk for the pudding and whipped topping. If you can’t purchase whipped topping where you live or don’t like it, you can also use whipping cream.

After your cupcakes are cooled and the mousse is set, you will need to prepare the cupcakes for filling. There are several different methods for filling. You can watch my video to see how to add filling to a cupcake. This time, because the mousse is a little softer than some fillings, I wanted there to be a larger hole, so I used an apple corer. Be sure when you are making the hole that you don’t go clear to the bottom of the cupcake, or the filling will leak out into the cupcake liner.

Then it’s time to fill the cupcakes. You can use a spoon if you like, I like using a decorator bag, it’s quick and easy, and less messy.

Now you can frost them. I used Buttercream Frosting, and a decorator bag fitted with a 1M tip. And of course, sprinkles are always fun too.
