Topic: Spring Time Lemon Burst Cupcakes

LauraAmador    -- 03-30-2011 @ 10:15 AM
  I made these
cupcakes yesterday and they taste great...
However, I'd like them to be a little more lemony. I'm a fairly new baker
and am a little nervous to experiment. So here's my question.. should I
add lemon extract to the cake mix or maybe try a different icing,
maybe a lemon icing? I don't want to over power them.  Can't wait to
hear yall's ideas! They were so easy to make that I'm up for trying them
again but with your suggestions! =)

Here is the recipe I used:

  Laura....personally I would "experiment" with the zest from a lemon rind BEFORE I added any lemon juice at all!(I tried to check out the cupcake recipe BUT for some reason I kept getting a message that said "the page did not exist"?
Anyway......try 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest to your recipe and see how that works. Not lemony enough?...then next time add 1 teaspoon/etc.!
Good luck and keep us posted on the outcome, okay?

  Thank you! I'll add lemon zest! I didn't even think of that! =)

I'm not sure why you couldn't get to the link... here it is again, but it's not
much of a recipe even ha. But I'm excited to add the zest!

  I finally got onto your blog!
I did read the lemon cupcake recipe and suggest you contact a Tupperware dealer to purchase "an egg-separator"!......lolol. Sooooooooo much easier using one of those!
Was interested in your biscuits for the dogs too but adding id's for things/google, give me a "pita"!

  Hi Laura,
Here is a link to the lemon cake recipe I use.  It is
awesome!  Super light and super lemony.  Sometimes I
drizzle hot lemon syrup over them when they come out of
the oven, and they make a fantastic base for lemon
meringue cupcakes.  I bake the cakes, fill them with
lemon curd, then top them with meringue.
Give it a go and let me know how you like it!
Best of luck.

Happy Baking!
