This is my favourite cream filling to use in chocolate cupcakes. Just fill in a pastry bag and pipe it into the cupcakes from the top, when they are cooled. Frost cupcakes as usual or just dig in!

The kids really enjoyed this filling in chocolate cupcakes. I didn't try it myself as I am on the South Beach Diet, but if the kids are happy, I'm happy. Thx for sharing.
