These cupcakes held the secret to Baby Butler #2’s sex.

To make these cupcakes I baked a bunch of regular cupcakes and a 9″ round (shallow-ish) of the same batter as the cupcakes, but with the color dye to correspond to the baby’s sex.

After everything had cooled (and let’s be honest, after I cleaned up the kitchen so I had space to work again) I used a tiny little biscuit cutter, about 1/2″ in diameter to hollow out the center of the cupcakes making sure I didn’t go all the way to the bottom.  After hollowing out each of the cupcakes and eating the cake I was removing, I did the opposite with the 9″ round dyed cake.

I would push the biscuit cutter into the cake while twisting slightly to prevent any squishing, remove it, then insert it into a hollowed-cupcake.  When removing it from the cupcake I would push the dyed cake through, to allow it to stay inside the cupcake.

This process ensured that the center of the cupcakes weren’t overdone, like they could have been had I poured cupcake batter around cut out pieces of dyed cake and baked it that way.

After inserting all of the dyed cake into the cupcakes I piped on the frosting and called it a day, after eating one.

We had a get together with some friends and the cupcakes were a hit!
