Remove the Centers

Insert the base of a large pastry tip (I use Ateco's #800) into the center of the cupcake about 1/4-inch deep (1/2-inch deep if filling and then frosting), and twist until the cake center twists alongside the tip; pull directly up to remove the center. Reserve the cake centers if your cupcakes will be frosted (rather than just filled), otherwise discard or eat the centers.
