Husband was positively stoked when I told him about this recipe a while back. Unfortunately for him, this spring forward weekend has been a bit of a mess, so I had to resort to a few shortcuts to manage to get these cupcakes made. I have promised him an I.O.U. for a future making of these cupcakes, complete with seven-minute frosting and lemon curd. These cupcakes are really lemon meringue imposters. I did manage to make the lemon cupcakes...but time was working against me when it came to making the lemon curd. And well, I was already cutting corners, so I decided to make a simple vanilla buttercream frosting for the cupcakes rather than the seven-minute frosting.
What's cooking in Toddler's kitchen? Could it be? Has he mastered Martha's cupcakes?
These were a great treat for Husband. We had a rough weekend, between having some serious computer challenges and Toddler becoming the pickiest eater on the planet, throwing tantrums left and right at the dinner table. I think he really enjoyed sitting down to watch "The Amazing Race" with a yummy lemon cupcake. And these sure were yummy. They might not be beautiful, but they did taste good.
They may not appear on Tastespotting, but they were still tasty in their own right.
