Growing up on LI I loved Drakes Cakes. Yankee Doodles were near the top of my favorites. That wonderful cream!!!! Somewhere my friend, Laura, found the recipe for these cupcakes. Use with your favorite, boxed chocolate cake mix. This cream used to be difficult to make as I have no patience and my hands would get tired. Now that I have a mix-master it is no longer a problem. We would make these for kids birthdays and get so many compliments. My in-laws always wanted me to make ANY cake and use the cream frosting. If you are using a hand mixer, be prepared for sore hands.

How to Make Yankee Doodle Cupcakes Cream


  1. Cut tops off of cooled cupcakes and set tops aside. Try to make a bit of a depression in the cupcakes to be filled later.
  2. In small sauce pan beat milk and flour until it thickens.
  3. In separate bowl (use your mix-master if you can) beat margarine for 4 minutes
  4. Beat in shortening for 4 minutes
  5. Add vanilla and flour mixture and beat until creamy and cool. (more than 4 minutes)
  6. Take cupcakes without tops and put cream into each. Put cut-off top pieces onto the top of the cream. They will stick up but they taste amazing.
