I only saw them at one bakery when I was a kid and haven't seen them since.
I've made these. Are they anything like you are talking about?

No, those aren't them. Thanks for looking
I can't remember if it was this forum long ago or not, but I recall somebody attaching a name to what I was describing.
They are about 3" cubes made with white, super-moist cake.
Then it looks like they would be pressed into either a chocolate or lemon sauce on all sides. How they do that is beyond me, they are so moist you have to be careful when you just pick one up and take a bite. They are very delicate.
Then they are pressed into the coconut on all sides.

I'll email my sister, she might remember what they were called.

I just made some last week. Basic batter with lemon zest, italian meringue frosting and lemon curd as filling. Something like lemon pie cupcakes. They were awesome.

Cool pictures, love the one with the 4 halved lemons.
Yes, those are buttercream with homemade lemon curd flavor. By the way, thank you for the compliment.

My mother makes me a lemon drizzle cake for my birthday every year.

I love that cake!

Surely the recipe can be adapted for cupcakes.

Hope this helps.
