A lemon cake or cupakes layered with Lemon Filling and covered in lemon buttercream is a magnificent combination which always seems especially suitable at Easter.
Lemon is also the perfect accompaniment to gingerbread. Make gingerbread cupcakes and fill with lemon butter and dust with confectioners sugar or frost with lemon buttercream.
Coconut and lemon are two more flavors that complement each other. Team lemon filling with coconut cupcakes and again frost with buttercream and top with shredded coconut.
The obvious use for this tangy filling is lemon meringue cupcakes.
Stir the mixture continuously while the butter melts.
Add the beaten eggs by straining them through a nylon sieve into butter mixture.
Cook, stirring continuously, over medium heat for 20-25 minutes or until the mixture is thick enough to coate the back of a wooden spoon.
Remove from the heat and leave to cool completely.
Refrigerate until set.
For the BEST cupcakes, this works like crazy ...
