Life begins at 325° F, and, yes, that IS powdered sugar in my hair.

OK, so, I'm reporting back as promised and, I have ONE thing to say...







MMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm



I made my lemon sugar the night before, used my base vanilla cake recipe and, subbed some of the liquid for lemon juice and maraschino cherry juice to make the most divine pink lemonade cupcakes which I topped with a whipped lemon cream cheese frosting.

Well! There ya go! Glad it worked out for you. I think I'm going to try to modify my vanilla cake to make a pineapple and coconut next.

Oh, that's too funny cuz, I'm working on that tomorrow for a pina colada cupcake.

I already have a really great coconut cream cupcake:

Ingredients
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup shredded coconut

Instructions
Preheat oven to 350.
Cream butter, sugar, and eggs together until fluffy.
Add vanilla and mix.
Combine dry ingredients in a bowl.
Add half of the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined.
Add the coconut milk and heavy cream.
Once mixed, add remaining dry ingredients.
Fold in shredded coconut.
Pour into cupcake tins and bake for 20-25 mins at 350.
Let cool, then frost.

And, I'm thinking of changing it to 1/4 cup each coconut milk, heavy cream and pineapple juice.

I made a pineapple coconut curd which I am going to fill it with and, then thinking of topping with a Malibu Rum frosting.

I just made the marbled lemon-blueberry butter cake from the Sky High book by Alisa Huntsman and Peter Wynne. The three-layer cake is marbled and filled with lemon-blueberry preserves (recipe also in book, made with fresh ginger). The icing is lemon buttercream - made with two whole eggs. I think I'm in love icon_smile.gif The buttercream is to die for!

SweetSuzieQ,

I think you may need a permit for that amount of flavor, lol. Sounds delish! Let us know how it goes.

Okay - so today we had the birthday party and ate the lemon blueberry cake.... my husband - who doesn't like cake - loved it. I thought it was dry and somewhat tasteless... after all that work, including making homemade preserves!! And no one in the group commented on the delicious cake like they usually do. If I make the cake again, I will substitute a blueberry lemon syrup for the preserves, double the buttercream and use it as a filling - or use lemon curd for the filling. The cake needed more lemon flavor and more moisture. The highlight of the whole thing was the buttercream.... totally awesome! I will definitely be using that recipe again.

Well, that's one less thing I have to bake! LOL Altough, the icing intrigues me so, I might make that with subbing in malibu rum for the cupcakes I'm making this week!

[quote="eatdessert1st"]I've used this recipe for yrs. It's a wonderful tasting lemon cake. I brush it w a lemon simple syrup before icing/filling. (But I do the simple syrup for every cake I do) I adjust the ingredients for a taller cake, though.

HTH,
Melanie Mc.


about this syrup. ive heard lots of people use it but then lots of people dont. why do you use the simple sryup? what happens if you dont use one?
always been confused about it
