Lemon and poppyseed cupcakes

What could be better than having the oven on for a day’s baking session when the temperature outside is -2?

I made 24 lovely little lemon and poppyseed cupcakes. I also made a jar of lemon curd and used some as a filling for the cupcakes.

I used an apple corer to remove a little core of the cupcake and squeeze in a nice dollop of lemon curd.

The icing was a blend of buttercream with mascarpone, tiny shreds of lemon zest and topped off with a sprinkle of poppy seeds.

The cupcake box was 99p from Dealz. I boxed six cakes as a little present. They looked well in it. 🙂
