Lemon Flower Pastry Tarts | Cake Angels

If I haven’t already mentioned it, I’ll say it again. I LOVE Lemon Tarts. So when I was planning some themed Easter bakes obviously Lemon Tarts had to find their way in there somehow. Then I saw it, Mini Flower Lemon Tarts, an adorable bite sized dessert perfect for parties and entertaining.

I’m always looking for creative ways to adapt recipes in the kitchen and I just loved this version on SugarApron, who uses flakey pastry and lemon curd. HEAVEN.

I wanted to do it a little differently though with sweet shortcrust pastry and Cake Angels Zingy Lemon Frosting and Super Sour Sprinkles and the result? A super delicate, delicious and somewhat sophisticated little treat which is actually so simple to make.

It’s also, I might just add, a fantastic alternative to chocolate this Easter.


Makes| 6-8 tarts

Prep time| 1 hour (including 30 mins chilling time) 

Baking time| 10-20 minutes


150g plain flour

75g unsalted butter

50g icing sugar

1 egg yolk

Cake Angels Zingy Lemon Frosting

Cake Angels Super Sours Sprinkles

1tbsp Apricot Jam


Preheat the oven to 170C and have a 12-hole mini cupcake tin ready.

Put the flour and unsalted butter in a bowl and rub together with your fingertips until it resembles breadcrumbs. Stir through the icing sugar and a pinch of salt then add 1 egg yolk.

Bring the mixture together with your hands until it forms a dough and knead a little to shape into a smooth ball (try not to over-knead as it will make the pastry tough). If the pastry feels too dry to form a dough, add 1 tbsp water.

Flatten it out into a disc, wrap it in cling film, then chill for at least 30 mins before rolling out.

Once chilled dust a kitchen surface with flour and roll out your pastry to approx 1cm thick. Using a flower cutter approx 10cm wide cut out 6-8 flower shapes, bringing the pastry back together and re-rolling as required.

Carefully place each flower shape into the holes of your mini cupcake tray and push it down so you have the flower petals resting over the edge. Fill the holes with a square of baking paper and some baking beans then bake for 10 minutes, then remove the baking beans and bake for a final 5 minutes until golden brown and cooked through. Depending how thick your pastry is you may need 5 additional minutes, if the bottom of the flower is still raw underneath pop back in the oven. Remove the pastry flowers from the tin and leave to cool for 30 minutes.

To decorate, firstly glaze each flower with apricot jam using a pastry brush. Then, attach the piping nozzle of the Cake Angels Lemon Frosting pouch and pipe peaks of the frosting into each flower hole. Flatten the peak down with a wet spoon or clean finger then top it with the Cake Angels Super Sours Sprinkles.

Serve immediately and enjoy.

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into
    any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either created
    myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it
    up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any methods to help protect against content from being
    ripped off? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on various websites for about a year
    and am nervous about switching to another platform.

    I have heard great things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?
    Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

    for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website
    soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid
    option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely confused ..
    Any recommendations? Thank you!

    I think that everything typed made a bunch of sense.

    But, think on this, suppose you typed a catchier title?
    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog, however suppose you added
    a headline to possibly get people’s attention? I mean Lemon Flower Pastry Tarts | Cake Angels –
    My Kitchen Drawer is a little plain. You should glance at Yahoo’s home page and watch
    how they create post headlines to get viewers to
    open the links. You might add a related video or a related pic
    or two to grab people excited about everything’ve got
    to say. Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.

  23. May 10, 2019 / 12:05 pm
