AMY'S TWINKLES

Items you will need:
one spice bottle about the size of a twinkie
aluminum foil (10" x 14" rectangles 10-12 pieces)
ziplock bag or pastry bag
a tooth pick or straw

Creating the mold:
Fold each piece of aluminum foil in half so it's about 5" wide. Place spice bottle in the center and wrap foil around spice bottle and fold the ends up to create your mold. It will look like a boat. Don't worry if they are not perfect (remember, these are homemade twinkies, not commercially made). Place the boats on a cookie sheet and spray the inside with baking spray and set aside.


Cake:
1 1/2 cups cake flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 eggs
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup cold water
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Sift flour, baking powder and salt and set aside. Beat eggs until light and fluffy. Add sugar and continue beating until thick and lemon colored. Add flour mixture, water, and vanilla all at once. Mix until well blended for about one minute. Fill each boat 3/4 full. This will make 10-12 twinkies. Bake for 28-30 minutes until light golden brown on top.

Filling:
2 teaspoons hot water
2 cups fluff (one 7 ounce jar)
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Combine fluff, shortening, sugar and vanilla into a mixing bowl. Mix on high until fluffy for about 2 minutes. Add hot water and mix a gain on high for about 1 minute.

When cakes are cooled peel off foil and use a straw or a toothpick to make three small holes on the bottom of each cake. Place your filling in the pastry bag. Inject the filling into each hole. You can use a ziplock bag for filling also ( just snip the corner of the bag after you have filled it with the filling).
This is WICKED yummy for your tummy!
