Zesty and zingy Lemon Meringue Cupcakes with a hidden lemon curd centre, topped with a subtle lemon buttercream and sprinkled with crushed French meringue.
You’ve probably realised by now that lemon might just be my favourite cake flavour and these cupcakes push that to the absolute max! Thanks to a combination of lemon cake, a hidden lemon curd centre, a light lemon juice-infused buttercream and even more lemon curd drizzled over the top, my Lemon Meringue Cupcakes are a celebration of all things lemon, and the crushed French meringue ensures that you even have that all-important bit of texture and crunch to round things off.
In this recipe, we’re using shop-bought meringue kisses, but I have included a link to where you can learn to make your own if you’d prefer. I must confess I usually would. Similarly, I am using my homemade lemon curd inside my Lemon Meringue Cupcakes too, the recipe for which is currently available over on my YouTube channel, but I will endeavour to try and upload it over here as soon as I can. Feel free to prod me over on social media if I forget.
