    Remove frosting from refrigerator and stir in a third of the grated lemon peel, combine well. Place inside a piping bag and use a thick tip, to decorate the cupcakes.

  • A good technique for applying the frosting is to make round swirls. Sprinkle the lemon peel, place an avocado piece on top and yellow coloured sugar as a finishing touch.
