The lemon filling was a homemade concoction of frozen lemonade, sugar & cornstarch cooked until thickened. Not bad, but I won't make it again. I'll probably use a jarred lemon curd next time. My mom suggested the lemon zest decorations and I think they were perfect.
The double-dark-chocolate cupcakes were awesome just as they came out of the oven, but to add insult to injury, I mixed some of the leftover buttercream with some cream cheese and folded in some chopped, frozen Oreos. Since there was no chance the lumpy stuff would come out of a piping bag, I just plopped it on in obscene quantities, almost like a scoop of ice cream. They were ridiculous! I will make them again for sure.
