Lemon-Limoncello Cupcakes

I came across this recipe and they looked too cute not to try. =)   First, I made the lemon curd.  You can buy it already prepared at the grocery store, but it's super easy to make at home.  It's just lemon juice, lemon zest, sugar and butter.

Then I made the cupcakes.  Pretty basic cupcakes, with a bit of Limoncello in the batter.  They came out super light and fluffy!

Next was the icing. It's a cream cheese limoncello icing, only four ingredients! Butter, limoncello, powdered sugar and cream cheese.

Once the cupcakes are cool, you carve a little hole out and fill it with the prepared lemon curd. 

Finally, ice and add the decoration!
