Creme Filled Chocolate Cupcakes

These cupcakes are very inexpensive to make but you do need to invest in a vinyl pastry bag and 1 cake decorating tip #32 to make them easy to fill. You may have to cut the pastry bag to fit the decorating tip inside. The tip should just barely press through the bag. Then you just spoon the creme into the bag and twist it closed.
