Simple, yet really delicious lemon cupcakes. These Lemon Cupcakes have a surprise waiting inside, a small pocket of lemon curd. It’s amazing how lemon curd has this ability to be tangy and sweet at the same time. And it's absolutely delightful in these cupcakes, this burst of lemon playing off both the buttery sweetness of the vanilla cupcake and the richness of the lemon flavoured whipped cream frosting.
