Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes

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.

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.Strawberry lemonade cupcake decorated with a candied lemon slice on a plate next to a pot of lemon curd, fresh strawberries and extra cupcakes in the back

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
