Lemon Curd Filled Cupcakes: The First Flop

Since my first cupcake went so well from chockylit’s blog, I decided to try another right away. I made lemon curd filled cupcakes.

These were way too sweet and just not particularly good.

I did learn a few things making them though:

1. I learned how to put a filling in a cupcake.

  • Wait till the cupcake is cool and use a paring knife to cut into the top of the cupcake and remove a small pyramid.
  • Fill the cupcake up.
  • Cut part of the pyramid off so you are just left with the part from the top of the cupcake.
  • Replace the top on the cupcake.
  • When you put the icing on, no one will know that the top had ever been removed.

I didn’t believe this would work until I tried it myself. It actually worked quite well.

2. While I don’t like icing to be very sugary, icing doesn’t pipe well unless it has lots of sugar. I skimped on the sugar in the icing for this recipe and I had big problems getting it to look nice on the cupcake. I was so displeased with the look of them that I didn’t even take a picture. Next time I may take a pic anyway. We shall see.

    Comment: The lemon is what hurt this cupcake. Well done otherwise, but not one of my favorites
