Ingredients you’ll need for this tutorial are:
Knife (serrated)
Circle cutter (2cm / 3/4″)
Knife (butter)
Star piping tip
Piping bag
Cupcake to frost
Mini m&m’s
Jaffas (or crispy / peanut m&m’s)
Ice cream wafter or easy to cut cookie

Step 1
Take your baked, cooled cupcakes and your circle cutter. Gently core out a small circle from the centre of your cake, being careful to keep the cored section in tact.
Tip: Twisting the cutter as you cut the core helps to release it cleanly
Step 2
Firmly pack the centre of your cupcake with mini m&ms or any other small candy (nerds, rainbow chips, choc rocks etc). The smaller the candy, the better your piñata spill effect will be
Step 3
Take your ‘core’ and cut the very top off – place the top back onto the candy packed core of your cupcake and press down to seal the candy in
Step 4
Decorate as normal! I used a simple star piping tip to create a beautiful Sundae Style swirl, then added sprinkles, a red candy and a cut ice cream wafer to give mine a classic and simple cupcake decoration which doesn’t give away the secret candy stash, hidden beneath the surface

  1. Wow, these look like calorie bombs, but they combine my two favorite things. M and Ms and muffins. I am going to prepare them in the near future.
