Make your own Happy Hour treat with these Meyer lemon limoncello cupcakes. The limoncello in the batter and the frosting turn these into an adults only treat that should not be served to kids. Of course you can always make a batch or two without the limoncello, but where’s the fun in that? These cupcakes are flavored with the aforementioned limoncello, fresh Meyer lemon juice, and Meyer lemon zest. They are filled with homemade lemon curd, and topped with cream cheese frosting – there isn’t much sweetness in these cupcakes!
Nothing says “summer” quite like a lemon and raspberry cupcake. These scrumptious cupcakes contain both. The batter starts off as a vanilla cupcake (butter, sugar, vanilla bean paste, you know the drill) but gets interesting once they are baked and cooled. The lemon flavor comes from the Meyer Lemon Curd that gets squeezed into the center of each cupcake. Top with homemade vanilla buttercream frosting, a dusting of sanding sugar and, to top it all off, a plump, juicy raspberry.
