Lemon Strawberry Cupcakes

24 Aug

I had a stressful day at work. PLUS we got the syllabus for our online masters program today and I was feeling beyond overwhelmed. The cure? BAKING CUPCAKES! It did help and the results were delicious. We also knocked our introductory class out of the park- so I’m feeling relieved.

I was going to make carrot cupcakes, but I didn’t feel right not making something fruity (since it is still summer after all). A friend suggested something with strawberry…. The result? Whipped lemon buttercream frosting on top of a moist lemon cake. Hiding inside? Strawberry filling .

 

As promised, I have posted a sequence of pictures of what it looks like once you have taken the little chunk out of your cupcake… The cone method.

 

Cut a hole (slanting your knife in- like you were cutting a cone)
Scoop out the little chunk.
Spoon in your filling

    A+ the icing did NOT leave an after-taste A+, it was substantial in weight and texture so you felt like you were actually eating something A+, although heavy in weight, it was not heavy in the stomach A+, the filling was very good…not too sweet…it didn’t make my teeth hurt like the filling in a donut, or, it was a good balance with the sweetness of the cake…in other words, not TOO sweet of a combo A+, the texture of the icing was also very good–smooth, not sticky —light weight A+

    I think a diabetic could eat this and not go into shock…do you know the calorie count by any chance or what the exchange would be for weight watchers?
