Threw together a couple recipes from here, I had one I liked, than Colleen had to go and post one a lil different, lol...I liked both, but wanted a little more...so took the good from each and made this! :) Cause that's just how I roll......lol

When I was doing child care, these were one of the kids favorite...I fill my cupcakes with a whipped cream filling and they like to stick the straw into the center and try to suck out the filling lol
