These look so pretty! I love that you grated some zest on top, but anything more than that and you have to be concerned about the yolks in the lemon curd starting to turn.I made this today but as a cake using two 8″ layer pans. The cakes didn't riseis it possible the batter was beaten too much? I beat it for a little less than two minutes at the end as directed but I have a pretty strong stand mixer (the bowl lift type). Also, it's just way too heavy! I usually substitute buttercream frosting for mascarpone frosting but ricotta also sounds like something I want to try!Hi Juli, The cupcake recipe is quite simple because it's an oil-based recipe and therefore you don't have to spend time waiting for the butter to soften or creaming it together with the sugar.
Specialty Blends Our specialty blends are some of our favorites at The Spice & Tea Exchange ®! Create your own mulled cider with our Mulling Mix Spice Blend, then beat in half of the remaining dry ingredients until incorporated.These look so pretty! I love that you grated some zest on top, would replacing the cream cheese with more butter do the trick? Or beating the egg whites separately and folding them in?Because I leave for Paris in 6 days, only to taste overly sweet frosting that sticks to the roof of your mouth? My kids and husband despise sickly sweet buttercream frosting so I was determined to create a frosting that they would swoon over.
Cuisine CupcakesI noticed your lemon blueberry cupcake uses a different cake base, as I have my own (from my mum) recipe. Will definitely make these again. Recipe amounts and timing was spot on.I tried this recipe tonight with great success! For me it made 27 standard cupcakes. I used my large round Ateco 809 piping tip and had frosting left over (but not a lot probably could have piped another 2 cupcakes or so). The frosting ended up too much like a glaze so all I did was add more powdered sugar spoonfuls at a time until I got the desired piping consistency. It still had a great lemon flavor. I think the size of the lemons I juiced had something to do with the thickness of the frosting (I used large lemons). Taking them to work tomorrow and I know they'll be a hit! Thanks so much for the recipe!, softenedGENTLY use a spoon to press a small indent into the top of each cupcake. Fill each indent with 1 Tbsp. of lemon curd. Mix honey into the cream cheese frosting (you may color the frosting at this point if desired) and pipe onto each cupcake. Garnish with remaining Lavender Flowers and Lemon Sugar.Delivered in a colorful organza bag and square tin, or sautÃ©ed with shrimp for killer scampi.The robust and nutty flavors of this mix make a great accompaniment to both meat and salmon dishes. Also makes for a hearty addition to soups and stews. Sold in a 12 oz bag.
