The Best Lemon Curd Cupcakes with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe
Brandy said- “Easily make 24 lemon curd cupcakes with a white cake mix (you can make them from scratch, but most of the flavor comes from the lemon curd, so boxed works GREAT and is quicker!)
Filling cupcakes is easy. You just use a frosting bag and fill it with your favorite pudding, jam, or in this case, lemon curd (recipe for lemon curd found here). Attach a round or star tip and insert your tip into your cupcake. Squeeze until you see the cupcake just start to rise. Then stop. You don’t want to over-fill the cupcakes or they will crack.”
Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 T lemon juice
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp lemon zest
Beat together butter, cream cheese and lemon juice on medium-high speed until smooth and creamy, about 3 minutes. Add powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, beating on low speed until incorporated. Add lemon zest and increase speed to medium-high and beat until smooth.
Frost cupcakes with a large star tip. Begin on the edges and swirl around until you reach the center. Top with a lemon slice and a raspberry for garnish.
