Old School Hostess Cupcakes

As my co-worker so delicately put it, "you even have the white squiggly debacle on top".   I was in a retro-style mood last night and decided to make the old school creme-filled Hostess cupcakes that I enjoyed so much as a kid. Although I was privy to Hostess Twinkies, nothing beats a smooth vanilla creme-filled cupcake. I remember rushing to the lunch table with my Care Bear's lunch box and eating my cupcake first, before my PB&J. Back then, dessert was an appetizer! Ohhhh, the good ol' days...

 I googled around until I found a recipe that required no supermarket visit for ingredients. I came up with this one, from Food&Wine. I made regular sized cupcakes and mini's. This throw-back recipe put me in a state of absolute euphoria =)

I love how shiny your ganache looks! Mini cupcakes are the best, but I always end up eating more of them.
