Lemon Meringue Cup Cakes!

Yes somewhere between a lemon meringue pie and a cake you will find these little bad boys! They are genius! They took a while only because I was determined to make it all from scratch including the lemon curd. You start with a lovely sponge base with some coconut for extra goodness and lemon zest too, bake them in the oven till golden brown. Take their little tops off (leaving you with a basket of delicious muffin tops to eat as you make the rest) and fill their centres with lemon curd (this takes longer that I thought to make, seriously after half an hour of stirring over the heat it still wasn't thick enough). To finish add yummy meringue mix to the top, use a piping bag to make them look pretty, I added some coconut to the meringue as well for added crunchyness. Pop them back into the oven for another 7 mins or so (until the meringue is golden on top) and hey presto the most amazing cakes I have made so far! Everyone will be impressed and they taste like heaven! being a sparkle lover I added some glitter (the kind you can eat) to the top for some extra magic).
