How to Make Twinkie Cupcakes

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine cake mixes and add ingredients according to the package directions. Bake in cupcake pans with papers for 15 minutes @ 350º.
    When cool fill with French Vanilla Filling.



    French Vanilla Filling

    5 Tablespoons flour
    5 Tablespoons sugar
    1 cup milk
    ½ cup butter
    ½ cup shortening
    1 cup sugar
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    dash of salt


    Combine flour, sugar in saucepan. Add milk and stir until lumps are gone. Cook and stir over medium heat until thick. Cool thoroughly. Cream together the other ingredients and then add milk mixture; beat 5 minutes. Put mixture into dispenser with pointed tip to allow filling to be squirted into cupcakes. Insert tip halfway into top of cupcake and fill cupcakes enough so they won’t break. Recipe will make 80 cupcakes. I usually freeze them so they are handy for the lunch box!
