[Recipe Share] Boston Cream Pie Cupcakes

Thursday, March 13, 2014

I mentioned in Seth's birthday recap post that I made him Boston Cream Pie cupcakes for his birthday. For as long as I can remember, he has always loved Boston Cream Pie. I used to order him an actual cake of it for his birthday but then last year (or the year before?) I found a recipe for a cupcakes version and thought I would surprise him with a different version of his favorite. Since he LOVED them, this year was no different.

Boston Cream Pie Cupcakes

Ingredients :
24 cake-mix yellow cupcakes, cooled and unwrapped (I used a butter golden mix)
1 (3.4 oz) box French Vanilla instant pudding
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup sour cream

Directions :
Make cupcakes according to directions on box.
Mix together pudding, cream, powdered sugar, milk, and sour cream. 
Beat on medium speed until stiff peaks form.

Cut each cupcake in half.

And add a dollop of filling.

Put top back on cupcake.

And frost with ganache.

1 cup heavy whipping cream
12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips

Heat cream in sauce pan until it comes to a boil. 
Remove from heat, pour over chocolate in a mixing bowl. 
Stir to mix together. Let cool slightly.

Keep in refrigerator until ready to serve.
