I love having visitors to the farm. It’s a fair hike out of town (half an hour’s drive), and so when someone asks to stop by, I immediately turn to the fridge to see what sort of sweet treat I can concoct to make the trek worth my visitor’s while.

Today, it was one of my friends from work coming around for a chai and a chat and I took the liberty of whipping up a batch of these lemon meringue cupcakes. They are a tangy but sweet lemon coconut cake with a tart lemon curd filling, topped off with a coconutty meringue tower. They weren’t as much work as the name implies, and I made the cake and curd the night before to make today’s assembly even easier. Give them a go and tell me what you think!
