Cupcake Corer Giveaway

Cupcake Corer Giveaway

reviews, cupcake techniques, giveaway
Hi, I'm Stef! Welcome to my kitchen, home to over 1000 recipes! Join me on my quest to push baking boundaries and live creatively both in and out of the kitchen.
Happy exploring!

Update:  The winner is Robin from Little Pat of Butter!  But, Jenny from the beautiful food blog Purple House Dirt has generously offered her cupcake corer as a second prize.  Jenny has never used it and wanted it to have a good home.  Joy from Pastries by Joy won that corer (it’s just the corer, not the whole kit)!  Congrats to both of you!!

When I first heard about the cupcake corer, I thought that it had to be the most gimmicky product imaginable. For years now,  I’ve been happily coring cupcakes without ever using the term or the tool –  I just used a small paring knife.  But, as a recent convert to apple corers, when I was offered a free sample of the cupcake corer, I decided to give it a go.

Stick the corer in a cupcake and twist it a few times.
Cupcake innards come out in the corer.
It makes a perfect hole every time, ready for filling.

After using it, I still think the cupcake corer is hokey. However, it does actually make coring easier; and since the kit comes with two squeeze bottles with tips for filling and frosting (silly me, using that spoon) and an offset spatula, it would make a great gift for someone just getting started with cupcake baking.

The nice folks at Cuisipro have offered me a second cupcake corer to give away.  Yay!

How to Win a Cupcake Corer

  45. Shonna says:

    I love all your cupcake ideas! My absolute favorite filling, though is the eggless Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. I made my own wedding cake, and actually used this as the filling for one of the layers I love it so much!!!

  46. Gladys says:

    First, wanted to say thank you for this giveaway!!! My favorite filling is “dulce de leche” which is similar to the caramel you made….but I used Argentinian Dulce de Leche…yummy!

    I can’t decide between vanilla pudding or strawberry filling. Yum!

  54. Jan says:

    I love cream filled chocolate cupcakes so I guess my favorite filling would have to be marshmallow cream.

  55. Lehcarjt says:

    I’d think the cupcake corer would cut the time down that it takes to core cupcakes. That would be worth it to me when I’m doing large batches (got the school bake sale next week).

  56. Heather says:

    One of my favorite things to fill a cupcake with is cookie dough! SO delicious. But I am reading from other people about cream cheese! I love cream cheese in pretty much any form so why haven’t I ever filled a cupcake with it! I love your blog by the way! It is very inspiring!

    I like filling my cupcakes with either cream cheese icing or choc buttercream!

  68. Kara says:

    I am terrible at coring cupcakes the old fashioned way, so I don’t tend to fill that many. However, this caramel cupcake makes me want to core some cupcakes. Mmmm, caramel.

  69. Laura S. says:

    I’d love to try a “molten” chocolate cupcake!

    I always use a knife to core my cupcakes, but this looks so much easier. I think my favorite fillings that I have done so far are chocolate or coconut.

  72. Kate says:

    Favorite is a peanut butter filling. Always unexpected, it’s good in chocolate cupcakes or in berry cupcakes (for a PBJ type feel)

  73. Tricia says:

    I’m all about the curds. I love that tangy, pucker that you get when you bite into a lemon cupcake filled with lemon curd!

  74. I’m personally a big fan of cream cheese filling. It’s not original, but so delicious.

  75. Mary says:

    Chocolate whiskey ganache filling! (And please don’t discount me because I live in Alaska. I am visiting my parents in the Lower 48 in two months and can have my prize mailed to them!)

  80. robin says:

    too cute! i’ve never filled a cupcake before, but it was because i didn’t know how to get the hole in it perfectly. would love to win these!

  81. Holly says:

    I’ve only done one cupcake with filling and that was watermelon jam!!! Everyone who tried them loved the surprise in the middle :) Totally wish I had this cupcake cored when I made these it would have made things 10 times easier!!!!

  82. Sue says:

    I don’t think I’ve ever met a filling I didn’t like. I think maybe a gen-u-wine, old fashioned custard would be tops. Although I would be more than willing to try everybody’s suggestions. They all sound wonderful.

    This corer certainly looks like a Cool Tool. I fill with mini M&Ms that have been mixed with a peanut butter frosting inside of a Deep Chocolate Cake. The M&Ms are tiny enough to fit through the right size tip, this gadget would certainly fit the bill.

  122. Taylor says:

    This would be perfect for making old-school Ding-dong type cupcakes with tasty cream filling. Yum!
