A love affair with lemon

My husband and l have a deep love for all things lemon, so after watching Master Chef my husband requested the most tartest lemon cupcake l could make for his birthday.

The cakes were lovely but could of taken a lot more lemon, l'm not sure if it is because l don't have a proper lemon zester. I think l will have to invest in one and see if it makes a difference.
