Out of the blue my daughter Sunday morning Football practice were moved to later on in the afternoon and happily we’re back in the baking studio. Decided to make my personal favourite cupcake (lemon cupcake!) since I’ve got 5kg fresh lemon in my fridge (we love fresh lemonade too) and skipped my usual cream cheese frosting due to the unbearable summer heat in Manila these days (warm cream cheese frosting is definitely a big no no) . Made extra large batch lemon curd instead, my idea was to use it as a filling and frosting at the same time.

Guess what, it works beautifully! I love the way the curd oozing when you bite on the cupcake, absolutely delicious and my daughter was having so much fun piping the lemon curd, this is definitely an ultimate Summer treat.

Enjoy your weekend everyone!

Tri-Lemon Cupcake

Happy New Year, everyone!

We had fun-tastic trip visiting family and spending time over the holidays in Canada, got back to Manila now all recharged and happy.

My first time back to my baking studio this week, I decided to revamp my favourite lemon cupcakes recipe, this time I filled it with lemon curd and added lemon juice to the cream cheese frosting also reduced the confectioner sugar. The result? Absolutely DELICIOUS, the frosting is tangy and really soft melt-in-your-mouth kind, the lemon curd give subtle sour kick in every bite, that’s it … I found the perfect Tri-Lemon combination, just heavenly.
