Lemon curd filled lemon cupcakes, mmm

As the yellow from the rainbow cake was such a lovely shade, and we had lemon curd at home, it seemed only right to try out the lemon cupcake recipe.  We had a do at one of Mr Becca's colleagues' homes today, a family day, and he'd volunteered me to bring a dessert item.  Team Becca are all kind of over cake and cupcakes, so to switch things up a bit I used lemon zest and juice in the batter.  I had some coloured muffin cases (I use these, as opposed to cupcake cases) so thought they'd look more fun in matching yellow cases.  I cored then filled the baked cupcakes with lemon curd and put some lemon curd into the buttercream too - along with a touch of the yellow food colour.
And guess what?!  They went down a storm at the lunch, and with all the Team,  woo hoo!  Everyone agreed that they were deliciously lemony not too sweet or tart.  They're a definite winner...
