Put It All Together:
Cool cupcakes completely. Hollow out a portion of the center of each cupcake. I use a wide piping tip, you can also use a small round cookie cutter or pairing knife. Keep the hallowed out portion. Spoon mousse into a piping bag or zip to bag. Snip one corner and fill the hallow portion of the cupcake. Press the hallowed piece back into place. Let the ganache cook 3 minutes, dip the tops of the cupcakes in the ganache. Set aside to cool and harden. Add a wonderful swirl of Raspberry Butter Frosting.
