On trying out some Lemon Meringue Cupcakes…

Today, I picked up another round of beta-test goodies from Angel, The CupCake Lady. This time, it wasn’t a cheesecake, but it was 12 cupcakes. I have only had her cupcakes once previously at the #SomethingClubTeaParty

Lemon Meringue Cupcakes!

I didn’t really know what to expect from the cupcakes initially. Being a huge fan of Lemon Meringue, I saw this on the list of options, and decided that it should be great to try out.  When I picked up the goodies, I just saw the meringue on top of the cupcakes when she showed them to me, and figured that it would be a lemony sponge underneath…

I had to wait a while to taste them, but when I bit into the cupcake, there was a lemon curd (or similar) hidden centre! It was awesome, and totally unexpected. Which made it even more awesome. Overall it’s not too sour (some lemon meringues have just that tad too much lemon…), this isperfect. Tangy but not overpowering… 

The only downside is that you would have to consume them on the day they were made, as meringue tends to either go all gooey or all chewy, depending on how you make it.

Come to think of it, it’s not really a downside, now is it?

Hips say ‘yes’, taste buds say ‘hell no’. I will however keep one until tomorrow to see how it keeps overnight… just in case you can’t consume a whole dozen by yourself on said baking day.

Definitely worth trying for yourself!

Head on over to her site, and order yourself some baked goodness! You know you want to. Your sweet-tooth knows it too! Thanks again for making them Angel!
