How to make Black Bottom Cupcakes: I've found the cheesecake filling works best in these cupcakes if you don't over-mix it. So I mix it up with a spatula instead of with an electric mixer to avoid over-mixing, and then put it in the fridge to firm up while making the cupcake batter. This way it sinks into the middle of the cupcake rather then spreading across the top of it in a thin layer.
