Whether the cupcake trend is on the rise or beginning to plateau, there is still plenty of room for exploring creative new flavors and styles. While traditional cupcakes are safe classics, coring cupcakes for delicious fillings is a delicious technique.

Cupcake corers are affordable, costing around five dollars, and simplify the process of adding delicious flavors. Fillings are generally ideal for normal to large cupcakes.

While corers are great for adding mousse, frosting or cream to your cupcake, they can also be used to insert bits of fresh fruit such as strawberries and blueberries.

For instance, Sivada’s Cupcakes in Jacksonville, FL offer a number of creative and non-traditional cupcakes. They are larger than typical cupcakes primarily because they remove the top of the cupcake, core the cupcake, and then insert the filling until it overflows. Next, they cap the swirled filling with the removed cupcake top.

They mix fruit with filling in some of these items. For instance, Sivada’s Strawberry Shortcake Cupcake is one of their more popular products. Using whip cream as the filling, they place strawberries in between the layers of whip cream and the cupcake top. The Strawberry Shortcake Cupcake is then topped with whip cream and a blueberry.
