These Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes are filled with a tangy homemade lemon curd, and topped with a swirl of creamy and colorful strawberry and lemon cream cheese frosting. They are packed full of refreshing flavors, just like a glass of tangy fresh squeezed lemonade stirred together with sweet macerated strawberries.
These Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes are cupcake version of my favorite strawberry lemonade from Red Robin. They used to have this drink called speckled strawberry lemonade, sweet but not too sweet and super refreshing. It even has real macerated strawberry in it, which has to be my favorite thing about that lemonade. I don’t think they serve that anymore nowadays but I used to get that every single time we ate there back in my college day.
How to Make Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes
For this recipe, I used my Very Strawberry Cupcakes as the base. I add a filling of homemade lemon curd for that tangy lemonade flavor. You could save time and use a store-bought lemon curd instead, I’ve seen a few brands selling it in the store for a decent price. But if you’re up for making your own, my lemon curd recipe takes just 15 minutes extra, and you can use the left over on toast, pancakes or scones. View Post
