The One With No Cream Filling


Okay, so these don’t have cream filling. But they taste about a hundred times better than their Hostess counterparts. I am catering tomorrow. Wedding reception for 400. We needed something a little chocolatey to round out the dessert buffet, and so I made the Pioneer Woman chocolate sheet cake... except I made the recipe into cupcakes instead. It definitely captured Skippy’s attention.


By the way, I love to make this sheet cake. Unexpected guests? You can have this cake ready in 30 minutes start to finish, because you frost it while it is still warm, and because it is in a big cookie sheet, it cooks faster than a regular cake to begin with. And no one complains when you serve it warm, with a little ice cream.

So I have to get up early to cook. Going to bed now. Just thought I’d share the little bit of nostalgia. I’m a little curious to see if the resemblance makes the cupcakes more appealing, or less. Tell me... do they work for you???

Those look delicious. I'm pretty sure I'll need to taste test those to let you know for sure though. I gotta try this. My kids would LOVE it.

You amaze me!

Clever girl. I never did like the cream filling either. Way to take an idea and make it personal. I have always loved sheet cake. It's the texture. So good.

Yes. It totally works for me. I want one. :)

Yummmmmm! My mom bakes up what we call her Texas Sheet Cake to perfection. I've tried baking it myself except I can never get the frosting as smooth as hers.

Your cuppy cakes are mouth-watering...
