Instructions

For the Filling

  • Beat softened cream cheese, Gentle Sweet, and vanilla until smooth.

For the Cupcakes

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Prepare a cupcake pan with liners, and grease liners well.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together.
  • Add melted coconut oil, vanilla, eggs, and water and mix well. (The batter will be thick, not runny.)
  • Fill cupcake liners 1/3 way full, then add a small dollop of cream cheese filling.
  • Put more batter on top, making the liners roughly 2/3 full.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 18-22 minutes, or until center tops of cupcakes are dry.
  • Allow cupcakes to cool completely before frosting.

For the Frosting

  • Beat softened cream cheese and heavy whipping cream for 2 minutes.
  • Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
  • I find the frosting works better if I mix it up, then refrigerate it for 30-45 minutes, then beat it again. This seems to make it a stiffer frosting.

Notes

Because of the filling, it is normal for the tops of the cupcakes to sink as they cool.
I find the frosting works best if I mix it up then refrigerate it for 30-45 minutes before using it. You can beat it again with your hand mixer to make it fluffy.
Store remaining cupcakes and frosting in refrigerator.
