Why Try? The lemon curd filling really makes these cupcakes special. Just the thing for your Easter buffet.

Foodie Byte: For tender cupcakes, make sure all ingredients are at room temperature before preparing the batter for the cupcakes.


  1. Line cupcake pans with paper liners; fill liners 2/3 full of batter. Bake according to package directions. Allow cupcakes to cool.
  2. Insert an apple corer into the top of the cupcakes. Do not allow the apple corer to go through the bottom of the cupcake. Twist the corer as it is removed from the cupcake. This will form a small hole in the cupcakes. The hole for the cupcake can also be hallowed out using a measuring spoon (1/2 teaspoon measure) if an apple corer is not available.
  3. Fill cupcakes with lemon curd using a teaspoon. Approximately 1- 1/2 teaspoons.
  4. Combine heavy cream and sugar and whip until peaks are able to hold its shape.
  5. Ice cupcakes with whipped cream and lemon curd (Approximately 1 tablespoon of each). Apply whipped cream first and then top with lemon curd. Use a toothpick or wood skewer to swirl lemon curd into whipped cream.
