Lemon Meringue Cupcakes

Nepotism.

What a dirty dirrrrty word. Funny, it also happens to be something I'm guilty of when it comes to cupcakes.

There I said it. No beating about the bush.

I'm not a big fan of cupcakes because the icing on cupcakes usually make my toenails curl. However I can never resist my sister's cupcakes.

Recently she tried out a new recipe Lemon Meringue Cupcakes, which received the thumbs and toes up from me. The lemon curd lay hidden under the meringue, its sharpness eased by the sweetish marshmallowy crown. It was so good, I ate three in one afternoon without feeling an ounce of guilt.

Meet citrus, my new muse.
