  1. I always wanted to make cupcakes with fillings! but never figured out how to make the hole in the center.
    I'm definitely going to try using nozzle next time ๐Ÿ˜€
    Your cupcakes looks really good!

  2. Wow these look beautiful! Every time I see pb & j cupcakes they're always very messy and not well put together. These look great!

  3. Diane, hellloooo- -these cupcakes look amazing. PB & J is great on whole wheat bread, but in cupcakes makes this combo heavenly! Great pics as always. xo
