The Hostess Cupcake goes organic in celebration of Earth Day!

I used Beatty’s Chocolate Cake recipe for the cupcakes. Organic (mostly) everything. The difference was I had trouble finding organic vegetable oil so I substituted for organic olive oil. These turned out much lighter than the non-organic version and they rose high.

For the filling and glaze I referred to Megans Cookin and her Mock Hostess Cupcakes. Megan, your piping and decorating skills leave me to shame!

I made regular size cupcakes and baked them for about 20 minutes. Once they had cooled completely, I used a large pastry tip to poke holes in the tops of the cupcakes. After that I used the same size tip on a pastry bag, and piped the filling into the holes.

The white swirl on top is just melted white chocolate.
