At the end of our time in the kitchen studio, Matthew stepped up to the counter to wrap up our Father’s Day fun by helping to make a ‘Hole in One’ Cupcake to share. These cupcakes are deliciously stuffed with yummy goodness & topped off with a special note for each ‘one of a kind’ dad! You can check out all of the directions from baking, to stuffing, to decorating by watching Matthew and I in the video below & then grabbing the recipe right underneath the video.
Hole-in-One Cupcakes by Jodie Fitz
1 fudge cake mix
1 teaspoon coconut extract
1 teaspoon almond extract
Mix the cake batter as directed on the package. However, add the coconut & almond extract into the measuring cup you are going to use for the water measurement on the cake mix package before adding the water so that it is part of the liquid measurement required for the mix.
Line a muffin pan with cupcake liners. The cake mix will make approximately 18 large cupcakes.
Let the cupcakes cool completely.
Use an apple corer to insert into the center of the cupcake to create a hole.
8 oz. almond paste
1 cup Price Chopper shredded coconut
In the video we created mimicked the almond joy candy for the center by mixing 8 oz. almond paste with 1 cup of shredded coconut. We then stuffed the center of each cupcake before topping it with frosting & finishing the decorations.
If you don’t like coconut simply exclude the coconut extract from the baking process & fill the center with a pudding mixture as follows; 1 – 1 oz. package of chocolate pudding, mixed with 1 cup of milk until thickened and then folded with 1 cup of frozen whipped topping. Fill a sandwich sized Price Chopper Snap & Seal lunch bag with the mixture and seal it tightly. Clip one corner & pipe the mixture into the center of each cupcake.

Mini wooden skewers
Paper (preferably cardstock or
Create flags by cutting the paper/card stock into small triangles. The kids can write a message for dad on them for Father’s Day. Glue the fags to one end of the wooden skewers. Once they are dry, they can insert the opposite end into the cupcake and make a small golf ball out of white fondant.
