Wanna be Hostess Cupcakes

Mmm cupcakes, cupcakes filled with gooey goodness. These cakes really want to be Hostess cupcakes, but they aren’t. The cream filling is really gooey. I mean making the cake full of filling goodness. I found out after making these cupcakes that I am in need of a larger start piping tip for easier frosting. Sure were a lot of circles with my “cute” little tip.
