I don’t really like surprises. I’m a planner and I love my scheduling tools. I don’t like April Fool’s Day because of the unknown surprises that could be hiding around any corner. I will make one exception for surprises and that’s with filled cupcakes. Biting into a delicious cupcake and finding it’s been filled with lemon curd, caramel, marshmallow cream…I can handle that surprise.
This is a tasty collection of filled cupcakes by other talented bakers and bloggers. To view the full recipe for each, simply click on the title of the recipe and it will open in a new window for you.

Every time I think of “rocky road”, I think of this delicious rocky road fudge that I used to buy when I lived in Alberta. I would sit down and eat the entire slab of fudge, end up with a tummy ache, and then crave more the next day.

Many years ago (I won’t say how many or I’ll totally sound old), I used to work in a donut shop. It was one of my first jobs and I came home smelling like donuts every day.

These Boston Cream Cupcakes by Tide & Thyme are filled with a delicious pastry cream.
