These calamondin cupcakes are smiley and sunshiny happiness. The calamondin cupcakes could easily be confused for orange cupcakes. But, there’s something about them – it could be the extra tartness, the calamondin coulis that yields a dainty speckled meringue buttercream frosting, or the candied calamondin ”Just Tops” resting on the cupcakes like tiny berets – that makes these calamondin cupcakes a notch above any orange cupcake you’ve tried. The cake is delicate and light, and the frosting pipes perfectly.
A 32 ounce jar of calamondin coulis and two packages of Just Tops ordered online from Calamondin Cafe (required for these cupcakes) plus a printed copy of this calamondin cupcake recipe would make a unique and special gift for the baker in your life.
