Once the cupcakes have cooled completely cut a deep hole in the center of each cupcake, using a melón baller or the end of a large pastry tip. Fill each hole with a heaping teaspoon of lemon curd.
Lemon curd :
In a stainless Steel bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering

wáter, whisk together the eggs, sugar and lemon juice until blended. Cook stirring constantly (to prevent it from curdling) until the mixture becomes thick. This will take approximately 20 minutes.

Lemon curd can be made several says in advance.
 Whipped cream frosting
In a large mixing bowl place the whipping cream vanilla extract and sugar and stir to combine. Beat the mixture until stiff peaks form. Spread frosting on each cupcake with a knife or spatula or pipe it.

  8. Hi Gloria
    I see you have been a very busy girl in the kitchen preparing delicious Easter treats.
    btw I love your blog header! Looks really posh! and refined.
    Just looked at the time I commented last time 13.34 and the time I started this comment 17.35 which means we are about 4 hours ahead of you. Which means if you make some cakes and I catch the next rocket to Satiago I might just be able to gather some crumbs after your big feast! lol

  13. I love what you did with the cupcake liners. Using two to make the colors from the M&Ms pop was a fantastic idea. I think I'm going to do that the next time I bake them. Oh, and I think we still have enough time for you to get those to me before Easter. Just saying….

    Much love and hugs, my friend!!
