These are actually better the day after you make them so make them ahead of time if you can. Very good cupcakes, but one thing I found a bit misleading- there isn't a cream center like I thought there was from reading the description. Naturally since you bake the cupcake after putting the cream cheese filling in, the filling is more the consistency of cheesecake; it's not like a cupcake with a cream filling.
