MSC: Triple Citrus Cupcakes


Hello Sweet Readers! Here is the latest installment of the Martha Stewart Cupcake Club! This month's flavor was chosen by Marthe over at Culinary Delights.

I was excited to make these cupcakes. They sounded so refreshing and wonderful. However, I was not impressed. The recipe was a bit strange in that it took 9 whole eggs for just a single batch! When the cuppies where done, they tasted a bit dense, were a bit dry, and were not as refreshing as I would have expected. The reviews from the family were just so-so. The glaze was nice with them. It was just a basic lime glaze, though, not your normal yummy buttercream. I won't make these again, but there are many more to try!

You can check out Marthe's review at the link above and the other club members at the official MSC site and see what they thought of this recipe.

Sorry they weren't a hit - but yours look great! My family loved these, but they were a bit dry for me too.

Sorry you didn't like your cupcakes. They look pretty though!

I love the shot with the citrus zest! I also thought that these turned out dense and dry. I guess they can't all turn out great right?

Beautiful looking cupcakes!

I have already given up on Martha's butter-based cupcake recipes and decided to create my own . . .

Thanks for baking along, Lisa!
