Delicious GF Cream-filled Cupcakes w/ Ganache topping

These gluten-free cream-filled cupcakes are delicious.  You can make your own homemade cupcakes or use any recipe or GF box mix you enjoy and make them your own with the easy filling and chocolate glaze topping.  They are reminiscent of the little Hostess cupcakes with a cream filling and chocolate topping. These yummy cupcakes are ready for some St. Patrick's Day fun! Enjoy!

Delicious Cream-filled, Ganache-topped cupcakes!
The following will fill and top ~15-18 cupcakes

You can use the filling and topping on either GF vanilla cupcakes or GF chocolate cupcakes, or use the cupcake recipe/mix of your choice.  Make cupcakes and allow to cool completely.  The following amounts will fill and top about 15- 18 cupcakes.  You can easily double the recipe to make more!

Beat together the following to use as cream filling.  Refrigerate until ready to use:
2 Tbsp butter, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 Tbsp heavy cream
1/2 cup marshmallow creme

Make cupcakes ready for cream filling by doing the following: cut small cones out of the tops of each cupcake.  Slice off the extra cake so you just have the top of the cupcake left.  Fill the cupcake with cream filling and replace the top slice.  Repeat with all cupcakes.

So delicious in chocolate cupcakes - reminiscent of the Hostess cupcake filling.
After filling cupcakes with cream filling, the tops can be placed back on top, making them ready for the chocolate glaze frosting to be added. 

Prepare the ganache topping as follows:
Bring to a boil in a small frying pan:
1/4 cup heavy cream
2 Tbsp butter
1 tsp vanilla extract

Remove from heat.  Then add and mix until smooth:
5 oz high quality semi-sweet chocolate

While ganache is still warm, spoon and spread on top of each cupcake.  Sprinkle tops of cupcakes with decorations, if desired.  They will harden into the ganache as it cools.
Cupcakes ready to eat! 

Best served at room temperature, but store in refrigerator until ready to serve.  Enjoy!!!
