Our pastry chef, Lindsey, outdid herself on the cupcakes at Megan and Michael's wedding. Having cupcakes in lieu of a wedding cake is an idea that's been around for a few years, but this is because it's such a great idea. Who doesn't love a cupcake? And who doesn't love the opportunity to eat several cupcakes in a row when it's so easy to dance off all the calories right then and there? Of all the wedding cupcakes that I've ever had, these were my favorite, by far. First off, they were filled with lemon curd, so there was that delicious surprise in the first bite. But even better, as far as I'm concerned, was the icing. It was meringue, just like on the top of a lemon meringue pie. It was light, fluffy, and Lindsey browned it beautifully. Topped with a thin slice of lemon as decoration, this display was perfect. And the flowers tucked between the cupcakes on alternating tiers was the sweet, finishing touch.
