I made these cupcakes a couple of weeks ago for the boyfriend's birthday and just haven't gotten a chance to post them. I was torn about what to make; alcoholic and chocolate cupcakes are always a hit but they are my go to. I wanted something different. Lemon Meringue Pie is one of his favourites so I thought I would go with the cupcake form.
I used this recipe from Living Eventfully that I have had pinned on my cupcake board on Pinterest for the longest time. I halved the recipe since over 30 cupcakes was a bit much and found the 15 or so the half recipe made to be perfect.
I was most worried about making the meringue frosting. Egg whites either love me or hate me. They seemed to be on my side this time. The frosting was super light and airy. It was perfect. I have yet to invest in a kitchen torch so I used the broiler on the oven and watched them like a hawk until they were lightly toasted.
I used the cone method to fill the cupcakes with the lemon curd. I love the looked peoples faces when they find out the cupcakes are filled. The best is when people ask how I got the filling in the cupcake. The cupcakes were a hit all around and the boy said they are some of his favourites so I am sure they will be requested again in the future.
Have a good monday!
