With cake still in pan, use a paring knife or an apple corer to cut 6 or 7 deep holes into bottom of cake, each about 3/4 inch in diameter; be careful not to cut through top of cake. Discard (or nibble) cake scraps. With your fingers, gently burrow a horizontal tunnel around the center of the cake, connecting the vertical holes.

Insert the top of pastry bag into each hole and squeeze in filling, tilting pastry bag back and forth as you work to encourage filling into the horizontal tunnel through the cake. When cake is filled, sue a spatula to scrape away excess filling form the bottom of the cake. Quickly and carefully invert cake onto a serving platter. Dust with powdered sugar if desired and serve.
