Last month, my husband had a birthday. . . it was a great excuse to whip up some cupcakes. I made a cake, too. . . but that was a kitchen nightmare (seriously! Major kitchen disaster!). But, the cupcakes came out so yummy. My inspiration was these cupcakes that we often get from our local cupcake-ry. Last year, Jon got all Cake Boss on me and made me make this, so I knew that I wanted to do something special for him and Boston Cream Pies are one of his favorite desserts.
Now, I hope that this post makes sense. . . because I am incredibly sleep deprived due to the joys of motherhood. . .

Filling: 1 box vanilla pudding, 1 cup milk. Mix together and using a pastry bag, fill each cupcake with filling.
