Lemon Dream with Lemon curd filling

While we were in AZ, I tried a new cupcake. I had to. . . I found lemon curd at Trader Joes, and it just BEGGED me to created a cupcake for it. I decided on white cake with lemon zest, lemon curd filling, and citrus cream cheese frosting. And the tartness was the perfect balance to the sweet frosting. . .

I have decided to call it "Lemon Dream" because, frankly, it was dreamy. I hate that things like lemon curd have to be refrigerated! I want to make filled cupcakes more often!

Please don't judge the decorating job. I was far from home without my tools, so I had to improvise and pipe the frosting with a ziploc bag. . . but what they lacked in beauty, they made up for in taste.
