People say, When life give you lemons, make lemonade.
I say, When life gives you lemons, you make awesome Lemon Curd Cupcakes!
Lemons are one of my favorite ingredients for baking. The buttery sweetness of the cupcake seems to pair beautifully with the sharp tangy sourness of the lemon.
This was a request from a friend to make birthday cupcakes for her sister's birthday, and of course I was ever ready to make something new and different. I wanted a filling for my cupcakes, because regular lemon cupcakes just don't cut it. (Click here to see my never fail cupcake recipe)

I tried making lemon curd for the first time ever... and it is soooooooo gooooood!!! I am so in LOVE with lemon curd - I'm gonna put it on everything from now on!
I dug little holes in my cupcake - and filled them with my delicious lemon curd, then covered the 'man-hole' back again. I then topped the cupcake with cream cheese.
I loved the whole combination. Creamy cheese, tangy lemon, buttery cake.
To decorate, I played around with some ready made sugar decorations I bought at the bakery shop. Aren't they adorable?

|And I think this red and white combination is just adorable! :D|
