tried out the raspberry pyramid ones with kids cooking at a party this weekend. Sponge was lovely and light. Think there might be a typo in the topping quantities - should it be 2tsp of lemon juice, rather than tbs. We ended up with a sloppy mess. No way could it be piled ontop of the cupcakes. You may want to check before the nation starts baking!!!

Found this muffin recipe really dry and heavy...didn't keep well. Tried the recipe again adding more cream but still not great. Wouldn't use again however the topping was lovely and highly recomended - have used over and over again on various other cakes.
