Lemon Meringue Cupcakes. I didn't make the cupcakes in this recipe, but I did make the lemon fillings and meringue topping. I used a vanilla bean cupcake for the base. Lovely combination! The meringue was slightly runny, but was remedied by mixing longer than stated.
Coconut Cupcakes For the Frosting.... 9 ounces of coconut milk 2 cups (4 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature zest of 2 medium limes 1.5 pounds (about 5 3/4 cups) confectioners' sugar 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
This towering dessert is made up of layers of super-moist, almost puddinglike coconut cake spread with tangy passion fruit curd, then topped with whipped cream and crispy flakes of toasted coconut. The recipe is from Cynthia Wong, pastry chef in Decatur, Georgia. The cake may look intimidating, but it's easy to make: "Just pop the layers out of the baking pans and slap them together," Wong says.
