Cupcakes & Frosting
I have to share with you an amazing frosting that is so simple and so good. I’m all about simple when it comes to the kitchen. I love to cook and bake as long as a recipe does not involve ingredients that are hard to find or is one that keeps me in the kitchen forever. If this is the case well, count me out on cooking that recipe.
Ingredients Needed: Lemon Cake Mix or mix of your choice plus eggs, Water & Oil, Lemon Curd, Wilton White Sparkling Sugar, Cupcake Liners,
So here is a fabulous cupcake recipe that is simple and does not take long at all. First mix a lemon cake mix as instructed on the box. Fill a muffin pan with cupcake liners, place lemon cake mix inside each liner then add the magic…. one tablespoon of lemon curd. Bake as instructed on cake mix box. Once the cupcakes are baked let them cool completely. This is very important so no cheating or you will seriously regret your decision.
Now to make your frosting. Take one tub of frosting and place it into a mixing bowl, you can use any flavor but since my cupcakes are lemon and I love lemon flavored anything I used lemon frosting. Now add the magic, place the contents of one 8 ounce container of thawed Cool Whip into the mixing bowl with the frosting and mix together until fully mixed. Once mixed add the frosting to you cupcakes.
FYI… you need to store these cupcakes in the fridge. If you did not wait for your cupcakes to fully cool and the frosting is runny, well the heat from the cupcakes is melting your frosting. Patience is everything on this one.
I added a Wilton PEEP icing decoration in the center of each cupcake for a special Easter treat this year. My family loved these cupcakes and have already asked when the next batch will be coming out of the oven.
