This past week was my wife’s birthday, and unfortunately, we were not able to find time to celebrate as a family on the day, so we pushed the celebration back to earlier this evening. Since my wife is a fan of lemon bars, I came up with the idea of turning them into a cupcake. The result is what I am calling my Lemon Bellies Cupcakes.
This turned to be a nice and light tasting cupcake, which really let the lemon curd shine despite there only being a small amount in the cupcake (in comparison to a lemon bar). The cake and frosting almost took a backseat, while still complimenting the flavors of the lemon. My wife and I both enjoyed it, though I should probably allow her to speak for herself. I would definitely make these again, maybe for a more summery event, like a picnic or cookout.
