and lastly, just a little splash of milk to loosed the mixture just a little.
Mix until just incorporated.
Line a cupcake tin with baking cases. This mixture amount should make 12+
Fill them just over 2/3 full and put them in an oven at 180° C for approximately 15 – 20 minutes.
Let the cupcakes cool on a rack, then use a short but sharp knife to take a circular plug out of the top

Cut your circular plug in half and set them up right back into the lemon curd so that they look like butterfly wings. Dust with a little icing sugar on top.
