A few months ago, I came across a really amazing and simple dessert over at Mighty Mrs. It looked delicious and I just had to give it a try.

Angela made a Twinkie bundt cake, but, I’m making Twinkie mini cakes. Same recipe, just different execution. 🙂

Pius, yes, they really taste like Twinkies!

List of supplies needed:

How to Make Your Twinkie Cakes:

  • First, make the batter according to the instructions on the cake mix. Bake according to the instructions for cupcakes. Let them cool completely once baked.
  • Once the cakes are cooled, insert the end of a wooden spoon into the middle of each cake.
  • Next, fill your cakes!
  • Fill a gallon size plastic storage bag with frosting. Push all the frosting into one corner of the bag. ( see above pic). Be sure to seal the bag!
  • Twist the top of bag firmly, creating a piping bag. With a sharp pair of scissors, make a small cut in the bottom of the bag.
  • Pipe the frosting into each hole in the cakes. It’s ok if you have overflow.

Just a few notes: If you wish to make a whole cake, check out the original recipe.

I found the plastic storage bag worked better for me than a regular piping bag. However, if you wish to use a regular piping bag instead, it should work fine.
