    How long will the cupcakes remain fresh. I need to bake them one day and serve the next evening.

      I've been requested as a home baker to provide these to a birthday party for someone that just turned 100! I test baked these several times. Please see comments under Meringue frosting (7 minute frosting). I bake and core, fill with lemon curd the day before. I would highly recommend making the frosting and pipe on the day of event. Not the day before. Stability issues with this type of frosting may occur.

    I used all whole wheat flour and I made the meringue with the egg whites and cream of tartar. I don't have a torch so I used the broiler. Love them!

    The kids and i followed your recipe and realised once it was in the oven we noticed that your recipe does not mention about the salt and baking powder. :( the cupcakes never rose :( Please fix the recipe so that others don't suffer the same fate as our family. thanks. From (dad, and the kids)

    This is a wonderful recipe! I love the use of buttermilk; gives the cupcakes a wonderful tang. Pairs well with the lemon! I used Meyer lemons and the flavor of the lemon curd was outstanding. Everything turned out just like the recipe said. You have to follow it to a T, though. The frosting was perfect as well, but took a little bit longer than 7 minutes. Just follow the directions and they will turn out perfectly!

    The cakes were great. Not too sweet. The meringue came out wonderful. I had a lot of trouble with the lemon curd and wound up using a jarred lemon curd. It still hasn't set and it's been a whole 24 hours.
