February birthdays

February is a bit lighter on for birthdays. There's Diane, Claire, Nina and Jasper but only one of these required me making a birthday cake or cakes as I decided to do. For Diane's birthday we had Lemon Meringue Cupcakes. I had seen some beautiful ones on Amy's website but my meringue was much more rustic. I somehow managed to have just the right amount of eggs for the cake (I used Garn's lemon cake recipe) and the lemon curd (recipe from CWA preserves cookbook)and the italian meringue on top which was lucky and satisfying. I popped them all on this lovely cake stand that my friend Bly bought us for a wedding present.
