  1. Insert a small sharp knife in the side of each hot cross bun to create a small indent. Use the end of a wooden spoon to increase the gap and create a recess inside the hot cross bun.
  2. Fill the piping bag with your chosen filling and squeeze a quarter of the filling into each hot cross bun. Gently pinch the edge of the hot cross bun together to seal.
