When it gets close to summer time I start getting antsy for lemon. It’s a flavor that is makes me feel rejuvenated and energized. One of my favorite cupcakes during the Spring and Summer seasons is my Lemon Vanilla Cupcakes.
I’m a big fan of not only lemon but also vanilla. Vanilla is a a traditional flavor found in desserts and I found adding lemon to my vanilla cupcake recipe complemented the lemon nicely.
Finding a garnish that was tasty and cute was an easy task with these Candied Lemon Slices. Candied fruit slices are always a delicious treat and they make the perfect topper for cupcakes! Hint: The trick is to let the slices completely cool before adding them to your cupcakes or they’ll slump and fall over.
These tasty cupcakes are perfect for summer parties. They not only taste great but they add a a bright color to a summer spread. Everyone loves the candied lemon addition and it presents something other than the traditional fruit topping. The sugar takes away the bitterness of the lemon so when you’re biting into the peel it’s a pleasant taste instead of a sour one.
I used the Wilton 1M tip to frost these cupcakes. I find this tips works well when frosting buttercream that has an additive to it such as lemon zest. The presentation is always beautiful with this tip.
