So, when I saw the recipe for the cupcakes I knew I had to give them a try.
A Night Owl Blog, but I'm pretty sure they taste just as great. There is no doubt these have lemon in them, very puckerish (I made this word up), but in a good way. And, the frosting. Well, I may put Mascarpone, an Italian cheese made from cream, in all my frosting recipes. In fact, you could easily substitute Mascarpone on your breads like biscuits and muffins as it has fewer calories and less fat than butter.
I put just a light spread of the home-made lemon curd on the tops of the cooled cupcakes, then iced them with the Mascarpone powdered sugar frosting. A few cupcakes indented slightly when they cooled so with those I added a little more curd. When you took a bite, the curd just flowed out to make the prettiest presentation.
