The lemon cupcake recipe and lemon buttercream is from The Primrose Bakery, and can be found online here. There appears to be a mistake in the buttercream recipe, as it refers to milk in the method but not in the ingredients. Working from their vanilla buttercream recipe, I estimated that it needed 30ml of milk, which together with 30ml of lemon juice, makes 60ml of fluid, as per the vanilla buttercream. This seemed to work just fine.
I think the cupcakes turned out really cute:
The piping is not as neat as it could have been, because I suspect I used my pastry tip instead of my icing tip, but that's OK.
I had a sneaky taste of both cake and buttercream, and they are both pleasantly lemony and delicious.
The shoes are made from fondant that I hand-coloured in with red (pink) and blue colouring, and using this mould (I got mine from Cake Deco in Port Phillip Arcade). I didn't bother messing around with the bows or flowers as I have no idea if Michelle is having a boy or a girl.
This is a super easy idea for a baby shower, and the cakes are tasty too.
