It is that time of the month… cupcakes’ time!!! Megan from My Baking Adventures chose Lemon Meringue Cupcakes on page 142. I finally got an opportunity to make something lemony that I was hoping can brighten up these dready cloudy pseudo-spring days that we’ve been getting! I knew right away that I wanted to make the lemon curd, but I decided to skip the meringue frosting. Yea, yea I know… it wouldn’t be called lemon meringue without the meringue. I just ran out of time; so I decided to just make the lemon curd and used up the buttercream that I had leftover from my Wilton class 2.
The lemon curd was definitely a must; it made the cupcake “pop”–because it had such an intense lemon flavor. The cake itself was a bit too dense for my taste; I prefer mine to be light and fluffy. But the combo between the cupcake, lemon curd, and the buttercream frosting (vanilla flavor, although I colored it to look like a mocha color) tasted like summer!
