Buzzy Bee Cupcake – honey cupcakes with silken lemon curd filling. Sitting atop is a soft-baked meringue “bee hive” guarded by a chocolate honey bee. Price available upon request.

I had been wracking my brain for ideas on how to dress up these wonderful honey cupcakes. I thought of the honey-lemon Halls candies. If the flavor combination works on the candies, then it can also work on cupcakes. And it does! The lemon curd on its own is very tangy but it really marries well with the flavor of the cupcake. The “bee hive” is made of soft meringue baked just until the tips get brown. The bees are made of white chocolate with almond flaked nuts as wings. Everything is edible, except of course the cupcake liner!
