The family really enjoyed this for Easter dessert! I made some modifications: I used an angel food cake pan instead. I added more Vanilla Bean Paste to the custard because the flavor was too faint for me with just 2 tsp. I love vanilla flavor so I added more until it tasted to my preference...probably another 2 tsp. I also flavored the angel food cake with 1 tsp of almond extract. I removed a tunnel of cake and added the filling, leaving about half an inch that I filled with halved strawberries. I made the cake and custard the night before and assembled it about 2 hours before we ate it.

One of my favorite cupcakes!!!! I too also add more vanilla bean paste, and they are excellent. I also filled some of the cupcakes with homemade lemon curd, and they are also very good.
