Raspberry Lemon Cupcakes

A few months ago we visited the White Rabbit Bakery in Aurora, Oregon.  I had tried their seasonal flavor which at that time was the Apple Irish Cream.   It was so good and I'm not an apple fan, that I had to look up what the seasonal flavors were for the other months.  For June the seasonal flavor was The Marion County- vanilla cake, with marionberries baked in the batter, filled with lemon curd and frosted with vanilla buttercream.  It sounded delicious and I wanted to go try it.  Unfortunately I wasn't able to get down to the bakery to try it. Sooo, I decided to try and make my own.

I cheated a little and picked up a vanilla cake mix instead of making it from scratch.  I didn't have any marionberries so I substituted raspberries.  I mixed up the box cake mix, sifting it so it would be smooth when I mixed in the water, eggs and oil.  Once the cake mix was all mixed up I added the raspberries. I was very generous with the raspberries.

Once the cupcakes cooled after baking I made the vanilla buttercream.  I used a few tips I found from a professional baker and it made a big difference in how the buttercream came out. I used the whisk attachment in my mixer, sifted all the confectioners sugar and added the confectioners sugar in a spoonful at a time instead of dumping it in. 

Before frosting the cupcakes I scooped out the middle, filled the cupcakes with lemon curd and than frosted them.  I used the Wilton 2D tip to frost the cupcakes, grated some lemon rind over the cupcakes and topped with a fresh raspberry.

These cupcakes turned out pretty darn good.  I thought I had put a little too much lemon curd in the middle, I tend to be generous when I fill my cupcakes, but my husband said they were really good.  He didn't think I put too much lemon curd in.  In fact, he had two! Woo hoo! I love when I have a cupcake success.
