I just use a decorating bag, take out a portion of my regular icing and add a bit of milk to thin it a bit.  However, in one of our food stores (GFS), they have a vanilla cream that comes in a big tube, and that works quite well.  I use a decorating tip with a fairly large hole....stab it in the cupcake....and squirt in as much as it will hold....then ice with your regular icing, not the one that you have added milk to.

I have a recipe for a very fluffy filling that I use for Whoopie Pies.  It is also great as a filling for a cake and I have frosted a cake with it as well.
Fluffy Frosting
1 Cup milk
1/4 Cup flour
1 Cup butter or shortening
3/4 to 1 Cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla or other flavoring
In a small sauce pan combine milk and flour.  Mix until smooth and no lumps remain.  Over medium heat cook until mixture is thick.  Cool completely.  Place a piece of plastic wrap directly on the mixture so a skin does not form.
In bowl of mixer beat butter or shortening for at least 5 minutes so it is light and fluffy.
Slowly add the sugar and beat well.
Add the cold flour, milk mixture by the spoon full.  Beat well between additions of the mixture.
Add flavoring.
If you wish to make this chocolate add 4 ounces of chocolate chips to the hot milk flour mixture and stir until chocolate has melted.

Any filling recipe for a Whoopie Pie will give you the light fluffy texture you are probably looking for.

Nikki - this is off  FrancescaMaria M's subject but on your frosting's.  Smile  Is this frosting thick enough to use in a cookie stack?  Not like a whoopie pie but two "regular" cookies like a chocolate chip cookie filling.

Sorry I did not see this sooner.  Yes this is a thick filling.  Very much like what is in a Twinkie, HoHo or other filled treat.

Thanks Nikki  (I think "Thanks Nikki" should be a single stroke on a keayboard Laughing )
I'm always looking for new cookie ideas and your whoopie pies are a treasure.

Come to think about it this filling just might be the one for the middle of my carrot cake. The flavor is not over powering and it is pretty light but it does have enough substance to it so it would not be squashed by the weight of the carrot cake.

To fill a 13X9 cake and I do this when I split regular round cakes I cut the cake with a serrated knife and with a smaller cake just slip your hand between the layers or use a cookie sheet or cardboard piece.
To fill it I pipe a ring of frosting about 1/2 inch in from the edge.  Make the ring about 1 inch high or if you want more filling make it taller.
Place your filling inside the ring of frosting.  The frosting will act as a dam for the filling.
Place the second layer on top and gently but firmly press the two together so the ring of frosting you piped seals the two layers.  Now the filling will not ooze out and mess up the frosting you will put on.
Place a light coating of frosting on the cake to seal in any crumbs and allow it to set.  Then frost with a nice full layer of frosting.
