Day 48 (16/10): Lemon Cupcakes
Updated: Oct 24, 2021
Since I love everything lemon, I've been trying to make more lemon dishes. For day 48, I decided to make lemon cupcakes. These are so soft and delicious and just melt in your mouth. To check out the recipe, keep scrolling!
Vanilla Cupcakes: For the cupcakes, I used this vanilla cupcake recipe from Sally's Baking Addiction. The recipe yields around 12 cupcakes. If you're interested in making an eggless version, check out this recipe I love.
Lemon Curd: I love lemon curd. I've made it a couple of times before, and it is SO delicious that I scoop it straight out of the bowl to eat. I made a lemon curd a few days ago for the lemon mousse. I had quite a bit leftover to use in this recipe. If you're interested in making eggless cupcakes, there are loads of eggless lemon curd recipes on the internet. Let me know if you find one you like!
Lemon Buttercream Frosting: I used half of this recipe to make the frosting. I had around half a small bowl of frosting left that can frost about three more cupcakes.
Sprinkles: I made these sprinkles a few days ago! You can use store-bought sprinkles but if you have an extra day, make these sprinkles beforehand. Just a warning, though: you may NEVER go back to store-bought sprinkles again.
Once you are done with baking, arrange all the cupcakes in a line.
I use a coconut opener to scoop out the middle of the cupcake. If you do not own one, you can use an inverted piping nozzle or even a knife. Remember to save the top crust for later.
Fill the inside with lemon curd.
Place the top crust back onto the cupcake.
Frost with the lemon buttercream, add sprinkles (or any other toppings you like), and enjoy!
I made these to take to a family gathering, so they have undergone travel heat. Also, I wasn't able to get the clearest pictures, but, if I must say so, they did look amazing. :)
See you tomorrow! :)
