My semi-homeade lemony cake with lemon curd filling nice has a lemon flavor for lemon lovers! Definately not the ordinary yellow cupcake.

I used vanilla store bought frosting, but it would also be good with cream chesse frosting. Next time I plan on trying seedless raspberry or strawberry jam for the filling!
