Lemonade Stand


Makes 24 cupcakes


This is designed to satisfy the tooth of the most ardent lemon-desserts lover. Lemon Buttermilk cupcakes are soaked with a lemon syrup, filled with lemon curd, and then frosted with lemon buttercream. For an easier version, use storebought curd, or leave it out altogether.


1 recipe Lemon, Orange, or Lime
     Buttermilk Cupcakes

1 recipe Lemon, Orange, or Lime Syrup
1 recipe Lemon, Orange, or Lime Curd
1 recipe Lemon, Orange, or Lime Buttercream

Brush the tops of the cupcakes generously with syrup. If filling the cupcakes with curd, insert a paring knife into the center of each cupcake to make a crevice. Fit a pastry bag with a plain round #8, #9, or #10 tip, and fill the bag with curd. Pipe curd into the crevices. Frost the cupcakes with the buttercream.
