Hannah's Buns Lemon Meringue Cupcakes

Hi Guys, These amazing cakes are not the easiest things to make to be honest. I make a simple cake batter and add lemon zest to it. ( not too hard i hear you say) Then once they are cooked and cooled I cut a hole in the middle and pipe in the lemon curd. Then comes the tricky bit making the set meringue frosting. You basically whisk up your egg whites make a thick stock syrup add this to the egg whites then cook off for about 10 minutes. If the mixture is not cooked enough if will run and you won't be able to pipe. Cook for too long and the mixture sets in the bowl. Also you have to work quick when piping as its sets rather fast and rather hot to work with. Once I had piped on the cakes I scattered on some lemon zest just to add a little more citrus to the mix. Hope you like :) Thanks again for reading.
