Other than the standard chocolate cupcake with vanilla filling, there are several other varieties of cream-filled cupcakes. Chocolate cupcakes can be filled with one of many different kinds of fillings including coffee or chocolate cream. The decadent combination of chocolate and coffee helps create mocha cupcakes. Vanilla cupcakes with a strawberry and mascarpone filling is an intriguing variety for those who want to try something a little different. Similar in appearance to vanilla filling, marshmallow cream is another option.

A chocolate cupcake filled with vanilla cream likely comes to mind when thinking about cream-filled cupcakes. Making them starts with a standard cupcake recipe that includes ingredients such as baking soda, flour, sugar, milk, and eggs; cocoa powder is added for the chocolatey touch. Chocolate, peanut butter or vanilla frosting or chocolate ganache can be used on top of the cupcakes.

There is also triple chocolate cream-filled cupcakes for those who can't get enough chocolate in their dessert. To create the recipe, start from scratch or use an extra-chocolately cake mix. For the filling, use chocolate cream, and top off the cupcake with chocolate frosting. For a decorative touch, stick a small piece of chocolate into the frosting or top it with chocolate shavings.

Those who love the combination of chocolate and coffee may love chocolate coffee cream-filled cupcakes. Start off with a basic chocolate cupcake recipe, but rather than using a vanilla or chocolate filling, use a coffee cream filling that consists of chocolate whipped topping, coffee liqueur, and cream cheese. Top it off with a coffee frosting that consists of blended butter, coffee, and powdered sugar. Add a few chocolate shavings on top.

Although putting mascarpone cheese inside may not sound like the usual filling for cupcakes, once mixed with strawberries, it can be a sweet creamy treat. Start by making vanilla cupcakes, and for the filling, all that's needed is a mixture of mascarpone cheese, sugar, and mashed strawberries. Top it off with vanilla frosting, then put a few slices of fresh strawberries on top to add a little color.

Marshmallow cream is an easy-to-make concoction that requires blending only a few ingredients. It takes less than ten minutes to create and can be used for the frosting or as a filling in cream-filled cupcakes. The only ingredients necessary to make it are vanilla extract, powdered sugar, corn syrup, cream of tartar, egg whites, and salt. To make chocolate marshmallow cream, add cocoa powder.
