Step 1

How I made them:

I prepared Betty Crocker Golden Vanilla cake mix for the cupcakes. When they were cooled completely, I used a thin, sharp knife to hollow out the centers of cupcakes as shown in one of the photos above.

For the pudding filling:
I whisked sugar free / fat free instant white chocolate pudding mix with 1 1/3 cup skim milk (and a drop of yellow liquid food color) then refrigerated.

Meanwhile, with a mixer on high speed, I beat a pint of whipping cream with 6 tablespoons confectioners sugar and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract until stiff peaks formed.

Then, I folded a scant one-third of the whipped cream into the chilled pudding, then added the diced bananas to it. (The remaining whipped cream is used for the top.)

I filled the cupcake holes with the banana pudding filling, just to the top of the cupcakes. I then dolloped whipped cream over the top of the filling. I garnished tops of cupcakes first with crushed vanilla wafers then with a single vanilla wafer and a slice of banana.
