Last week we set out with a bold plan in mind: To make lemon cupcakes, fill them with lemon curd, and frost them with raspberry frosting. We decided to potluck the ingredients: that is, everyone bring a few things, and then we combine them into one cohesive cupcake whole.
One of us was subletting a room in a charming Brooklyn apartment that was outfitted with a Fantasy Dream Kitchen, where all the bowls were beautiful, there was plenty of space and natural light, and herbs thrived on every windowsill. Above: A team mixing effort!
A close-up of my friend Madeline's (of the lovely blog A Girl Named Bruce, and also of real life, which is where I initially knew her from) lovely locks and adorable dress. This girl's got taste.
Post-oven cupcakes, bowl of home-made lemon curd (we were so proud of it, it didn't curdle or anything), and bowl of raspberry frosting, made with raspberry preserves and a bit of sour cream.
Absolutely amazing. If you just have to make them yourself now, the various recipes can be found here.
