Culinary Preparation

Before delving into this tantalizing recipe, follow these essential preparation steps:

1. Dry Fusion: Combine the ☆ ingredients and sift. Allow Neo Nature to reach room temperature and soften.

2. Candied Lemon Creation: Wash the lemon thoroughly, cut it into thin slices, and place it in a heatproof bowl. Sprinkle 3 tablespoons of sugar on top, cover loosely with plastic wrap, and microwave for 2 minutes and 30 seconds.

  • Once cooled, gently squeeze the juice between slices with a paper towel. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake in a 100-degree oven for about an hour.

Point: This step is optional, but doing it a day before enhances the flavor. If short on time, it can be skipped

3. Oven Preheat: Start heating the oven to 170 degrees.

4. Butter Bliss: Place Neo Nature in a bowl, whisk until creamy, add the remaining sugar, and mix until white and fluffy.

Tip: Mix thoroughly; this is key

5. Egg Integration:  Add beaten eggs gradually, mixing well each time. Incorporate the lemon juice from step 2, leaving about 1 teaspoon for the cream.

Tip: Add lemon juice slowly to avoid separation. Even if it separates a bit, it will still be delicious, so don't fret too much.

6. Dry Ingredients Revival: Sift the ☆ ingredients again and mix with a rubber spatula. Add rum if available.

Points: Nothing in particular. Mix until glossy

7. Cupcake Creation: Pour the mixture into molds and bake at 170 degrees for 15-20 minutes until lightly colored at the edges. Once cooled, remove from the mold.

Tip: Baking time may vary; aim for a light color rather than golden brown for a moist result.

8. Creamy Crown: Mix ingredients in a bowl, add the leftover lemon juice, and place on top of the cupcakes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar if available.

Tip: Add lemon juice gradually to prevent separation

9. Artistic Wrap: Wrap each cupcake in plastic wrap and place it in a paperback. Crumple up the wax paper, pinch it with a staple, and wrap it with twine for a decorative touch.

Note: Twine is optional and purely decorative.
