  1. I must try these! On Saturday when we were flying back from Portugal we stopped in Costa, as you do in airports, for a drink. Me and my sister shared a lemon and poppy seed muffin (OH! they're so amazing!) and it had lemon curd in the middle and it was delicious!!
    Also: in the ingredients you've written lemon turd ~immature snorts of laughter~

    1. I hate to say this, but it wasn't a mistake... *Sighs so hard, lumps of strawberry turd fly out of nose into blueberry turd cupcakes*

  2. I will definitely try baking these when I get back from my holiday!:) how do you manage to post so many recipes? I'm a new follower, and would really appreciate it if you checked out my blog! (you don't have to, though!) thanks:D

    1. It was only for recipe week(: And of course I will!! You didn't even need to ask!!<3

    2. Oh, and if I was you I would actually trying baking them with curd instead of turd... I find it tastes nicer(:
