So my mom asked for cupcakes for her birthday and I was more than happy to oblige. I love cupcakes they are cute mini cakes. What’s not to love about them? Tsk… on all you cupcake haters out there! One famous one comes to mind, Duff Goldman of Ace of Cakes, but that’s ok because he did make the worlds largest cupcake!
Enough rambling and on to the cake! I made the better homes and gardens Triple Layer Lemon Cake and poured it into my silicone cupcake muffin molds. Popped them in the oven and while I waited for them to bake I whisked up the lemon cream cheese frosting that the recipe recommends.
I Than followed the recommendations from Baking Bites on how to fill it. I used Lemon Curd to fill the centers of the cupcakes, Dickinsons Lemon Curd, to be specific. You can find this at pretty much any grocery store. I love lemon curd, it is so nice and tart, great as a cake filling or on a scone.
