Tool Alternatives

I’m not talking about A Perfect Circle.

I’m talking about this little guy right here:


I recently bought this chili pepper corer from Sur La Table because I grow a lot of hot peppers in my garden and I thought I may make more bacon-wrapped stuffed jalapenos if I owned this special little device.

Soon I discovered that this can be used as a cupcake corer, perfect for adding fillings to cupcakes before frosting. Simply insert the end in the middle of the cupcake, slowly twist and “saw” at the same time, and you’ll end up with a perfect circle of cupcake core you can pop back after piping the filling.
