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
