Fresh Lemon Cupcake

These cupcakes are the start of summer for me, made with real lemons they are light and delicious.

Were as you can use a lemon enhancer I have always preferred that fresh real lemon flavour, in a batch of  24 I used the juice of one large lemon, if the sharpness of the lemon is a bit much, you can use less lemon.

I also use a basic cake recipe and added a touch more baking powder.

For the Butter cream, to prevent that splitting look I use a royal icing mix which worked well for me, once mixed  fill your piping bag and put in the fridge to cool for 10 mins, this makes piping the butter cream a lot easier and gives and more defined look to your swirls.
