Made this for a birthday celebration. I did a trial run first and learned a little--I put the filling in a decorator bag and used a large tip to pipe the filling inside the cupcakes--worked better than trying to shove a plastic bag into the center of the cupcake. I found the filling a little runny to frost the cakes, so the second time I made it, I used my leftover filling for the center and made more to frost the cupcakes, but omitted the cool whip in the frosting.

The cupcakes came out great (I used Duncan Hines red velvet cake mix). The frosting on the otherhand we didn't care for. The Cool Whip over powered the cream cheese and made it taste like Cool Whip . I scrapped the Cool Whip and made the recipe with double the cream cheese and butter, and added powdered sugar to taste. Then it was fantastic. Don't use the Cool Whip unless you like Cool Whip flavored frosting.

I chose this cupcake because it got such good ratings but I was very disappointed to say the least. The cupcake itself was just cake mix and pudding. Ok cool. So the rest of the ingredients were for this supposedly amazing frosting. Once I fed all my roommates, we all were sick! There is a ton of raw butter and (literally) a pound of sugar. Also, it was runny so hard to even put on the cupcakes. Definitely not worth the calories nor effort.
