Cadbury Cream Filled Cupcakes |  When you take your favorite Easter candy and make it into a cupcake complete with a fondant cream filling you know you have a winner.

Cadbury Cream Filled Cupcakes

Now you can enjoy your favorite candy year round with these incredibly delicious cupcakes.  To create these Easter Treats I started with my favorite Devil’s Food Cupcake Recipe, hollowed out the center and filled the cupcakes with fondant cream.  I even colored some of the cream yellow to represent the yolk like what’s inside a Cadbury Egg.  Then I topped them with a fluffy creamy frosting.

Hollow out some of the cupcake.
