|Lemon cupcake with lemon curd filling|
I made the cupcakes without the limoncello and they're still pretty lemony. The cupcakes taste really good but I'm not sure about the texture. I had the cupcakes in the refrigerator over night so I'm not sure if the cupcake is firm from being refrigerated or it's the cake itself. I originally made the lemon curd from the cupcake site that I listed and in my opinion the consistency wasn't right. So, I went back to the recipe I usually use from Martha Stewart. Which, of course, always turns out just right. For the icing I used fluffy cream cheese frosting and I topped it with a white chocolate covered maraschino cherry and a white chocolate decoration.
The cupcake looks good but the verdict is out on the taste of this one until I get my family to taste them. Hmmm... I will find out later if it passes!
