Cocoa Crème Snack Cakes
Mix water, buttermilk, oil and eggs until blended. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Pour liquid ingredients into dry ingredients and whisk until you have a smooth batter.
Spoon two large tablespoons of batter into each cavity of the pan, or until each cavity is 2/3 full. Bake for 12–15 minutes, or until cakes spring back when lightly touched in center, or cake tester comes back clean. Cool for 10 minutes in pan, then remove and cool completely.
Whip all ingredients on medium until stiff peaks form. Transfer filling to a pastry bag with a Bismarck tip.
Make three entry points on the underside of each cake with a toothpick. Holding a cake in hand, pipe filling through each, taking care not to overfill.
